Domaine Tempier Bandol 2014 Rosé, $34.84-$40.99, 91 points, was a ripe peach color.
The lovely floral strawberry aroma impressed.
Light-bodied, but with a rounder feel and a more complex flavor profile than that would imply.
Good acidity carried an array of red fruit and hints of hibiscus and jasmine flower flavors.
Finished long with gentle spice notes, a slightly noticeable alcohol, hints of ripe pear and a slightly tacky melon rind.
Varietals were 50% Mourvedre, 28% Grenache, 20% Cinsault and 2% Carignan.
