Bandol Rose Terrebrune 2013 (750ML) FR Flag In Stock
Bandol Rose Terrebrune 2013 (750ML)
91 WS 91 IWC
"The peach, mango and bergamot notes are very pure, with a refined stony underlay and a sneakily long finish that lets the creamy and mineral hints play out. Drink now through 2015...91" WS 7/14 "50% mourvedre, 25% cinsault and 25% grenache. Light, bright orange. Aromas of redcurrant, pit fruits and orange zest are focused and lifted by a mineral element. Juicy, palate-coating red berry and nectarine flavors are concentrated yet lithe thanks to bright acidity and a hint of gingery spice. This ample but lively Bandol rose finishes with noteworthy power, an echo of chalky minerality and an exotic honeysuckle flourish...91" IWC 7/14 "Reynald’s Bandols are different. There is a more ethereal quality to them, a real freshness—and with Mourvèdre accounting for 85% of the final assemblage, this is praise indeed. Soil, climate, and winemaking all play a role. Limestone dominates the subsoil of Bandol, with tremendous variation between vineyards. Throughout Terrebrune’s thirty hectares, beneath the layers of clay and earth, the blue, fissured, Trias limestone is silently at work. This bedrock lends a more noticeable minerality to the wine than others. The soil here is healthy and full of nutrients, because he adheres to organic farming practices; to achieve the balance in the vineyards, he plows regularly. Gentle maritime breezes funnel air into the vineyards directly from the Mediterranean, cooling the grapes from the bright sun—another factor in safeguarding the freshness. This, in turn translates to wines for great long-term cellaring, including the rosé and dry white. Reynald’s credo of “Philosophy, Rigor, and Respect” is not a catch-phrase. He believes that the hard work and extra attention to the vines is worth it, and, as they say, the proof’s in the pudding—a glass of Terrebrune! " Winery notes
