Domaine Du Gros Nore Rose 2020
Alain Pascal has a 17-hectare vineyard in arguably the best place in the world to make rose: Province, France. Tucked away, in the small village of Bandol, Alain, he’s taken over winemaking from his father Gros Nore (or “Fat Honeres” as he was known) and has been making some exceptional wines ever while maintaining organic practises.
This rose is predominantly made with Mourvedre and has some Cinsault and Grenache in the mix. The result is a beautiful bubble gum-coloured wine with notes of blood orange, fresh-cut herbs, dried cranberry and salty fresh sea air.
Get this wine if you want to summon the flavours of summer, however, do yourself a favour and get the idea that rose is a seasonal wine out of your head! This wine is an excellent companion to escort you to your next pot-luck or a fancy feast that requires an impressive wine that “goes with everything.
