Peppy. This wine is almost too damn peppy but that’s only a downfall if you open it at one in the morn. It’s...okay I’ll be technical. Eye: rather pale pink hint o orange medium tears/legs. Sniff it and pink grapefruit, tangerine, wet rocks and seashells and a hint of mixed greens say hey. Sip: medium everything—acid alcohol (checked it is 13.5 almost high but not!) body intensity and the palate is equal to the nose except more minerally. With a hint more of herb and some flowers may be blossoming in there. Damn I am a fan of Bandol. It keeps you dancing.

Pale salmon Mourvèdre rosé from Bandol with delicious peppery and herbal notes. Strawberry, watermelon, white pepper, herbes de Provence. Mineral and herbal on the palate with a bit more body than your run of the mill barely pink summer rose. Long mineral finish.
