2014 PRADEAUX BANDOL ROSE
" I love Pradeaux, which clings determinedly to its old-school ways. As with its monumental Bandol rouge, Pradeaux does not remove its grape stems for the rosé, adding structure and complexity. “We produce rosé to be a gastronomic wine, not just an easy wine,” said Étienne Portalis, whose family traces its stewardship of the estate back to 1752. The ’14, 70 percent mourvèdre, is rich with licorice and mineral flavors, long and deep yet fresh and refreshing. A delight."
