Vivid orange-pink. Blood orange, nectarine and red currant qualities on the expressive, mineral-driven nose. Sappy and penetrating on the palate, offering intense red berry and citrus pith flavors that slowly flesh out as the wine opens up. Shows excellent clarity and breadth on the very long, floral-tinged finish, which leaves a juicy pit fruit note behind. ... More details

A consistent performer in the Kermit Lynch portfolio, Gros Nore has turned in another fine effort in its 2018 Bandol Rose. Half Mourvedre, with the balance a blend of Cinsault and Grenache, it’s medium-bodied, with a silky-creamy texture and plenty of depth and intensity. Crushed stone accents pineapple and lime notes, and yet the wine comes across as fully ripe and harmonious, with fruit flavors lingering on the finish.

Region: Provence

There are few places in the world quite as evocative as Provence, and this relatively small wine region of France has become something of a world leader following centuries of high esteem and ongoing solid, reliable production of truly excellent, characterful wines. The wines from Provence are primarily rosé, made from red wine grape juices allowed a limited time in which to have contact with their skins and seeds, and are generally considered to be amongst the finest rosé wines on earth. Provence also produces big, spicy red wines, and extremely delicate, dry, crisp white wines, too. For thousands of years, the beautiful Mediterranean climate of the region has proven itself to be ideal for viticulture, and the wine industry of Provence remains as strong and consistently superb as ever.

Such procedures are designed to increase the overall quality of the country's produce, and also to ensure that wines made in each particular region or appellation are of a character and type which is representative of the area. Thankfully for consumers of wine world-wide, the French have a particularly high reputation to uphold, and seem to do so flawlessly. Every year, wineries from all over France produce millions upon millions of bottles of fine wine, making the most of their native grape varieties and the excellent terrain which covers most of the country. From the expensive and exquisite red wines of Bordeaux and Burgundy, to the white wines and cremants of central France, the French are dedicated to providing the world with wines of the highest quality and most distinctive character.
