Bandol Rosé 2018

Hecht & Bannier


The Hecht Bannier Bandol is a rosé for fall and winter, based on nearly 60% of Mourvedre, the wine is complex, with more structure than a traditional rosé in Provence. This is a wine of great, even exquisite, finesse which, unlike many rose wines, will age beautifully in bottle. Young, the wine offers the aroma and flavor of blood orange and dried apricot. With bottle age, after five years, the wine will gain in richness, power and depth.

Terroir: Sourced from Mourvedre grown in the finest, coolest and latest-ripening sites of the Bandol appellation.

    "Mourvèdre in the blend gives this wine a rich character, offering superb ripe fruit with a crisp edge. Coming from high-altitude vineyards, the wine has a fresher red-currant element that contrasts with the rich texture. Drink from late 2019."

    Grandma’s Perfect Easter Leftovers Sandwich -- "Rich and structured rosés like those from Bandol are the best match for all protein heavy ‘leftover’ sandwiches,” says Fiona Adams, assistant tasting director for Wine Enthusiast. “The ripe red fruit will match peppery intensity of arugula and mint jelly, and the wine’s firm structure can easily hold up to lamb. Rosé is a natural pairing for sandwiches."
