Domaine Le Galantin Bandol Rose
55% Mourvedre, with the rest equally divided between Cinsault and Grenache. The grapes are hand-harvested, after which the bunches are cooled down to 50C for a two day cold soak in order to extract fruit, color and aromatics. The juice is then racked off and the grapes are pressed to stainless steel tanks. 10% of the wine is saignée, the rest come from grapes treated as for making white wine. Following a cool fermentation (18C or 64F) during which the malolactic is blocked, the wine is fined and bottled. By law, Bandol rosé cannot be sold before March 1st.
Classic Provençal rosé with delightful fresh berry fruit flavors and a crisp finish. Mineral and complex nose of red fruit and citrus. Around 5850 cases produced.
