LCBO Note Status Recommended by Vintage Assessments!
This is crafted from Mourvèdre, Grenache and Cinsault. Bandol rosés are tremendously popular, and this is always a classic example of this complex style. Expect the region's telltale spice, herb and earth tones to be artfully interwoven with suggestions of strawberry, peach, citrus and mineral. This will prove a superb option for grilled seafood such as salmon and will also shine alongside smoked ham. Price $ 22.95
