Domaine Suffrene Bandol Rose 'St Catherine'

Outstanding full bodied and spicy Bandol Rose.  Decanter rates this wine as Top Provence Rose - 90/100 points!

Produced from a single block of old vines in a steep south facing limestone slope. Luminous orange almost copper colour with hints of pink and purple. Powerful spicy aromas of dried apricot and pot pourri. Dry, initial freshness giving way to a wide mouth filling texture. Balancing spices, savoury yellow and red fruits with persistent minerality – the king of Provence Rosé.

Mourvedre 90 %, Old-vine Carignan 10 %.  This is a rose that can be aged for 3 to 5 years.
