Bandol is a key appellation of the Provence wine region in far south-eastern France. Created in 1941, the title covers red, white and rosé wines from roughly 1550 hectares (3830 acres)
Bandol rosé wines, which account for about a third of total output, are known for their spicy, earthy character and rank among the more distinguished rosés that France has to offer.
Domaine de la Tour du Bon is quietly making some of the best wines that the appellation has to offer. The terroir here is a clay-limestone mix with a red subsoil. The 12 hectares of vines form a natural amphitheater overlooking the sea, and with abundant sunshine and very little rain, this is the hottest area in the appellation.
Kermit Lynch the longtime US importer of Domaine Tempier and La Tour du Bon has written this is the Bandol rose of the vintage in 2019. They have been refining it for years and now it’s on another level.
The mouthfeel is dry and racy on entry but with good depth offering elegant yet punchy flavours that are zesty and attractive. The wine finishes dry and long, with resonating spiciness and a hint of herbs. A beauty! Importer Notes
