2016 Domaine Le Galantin - Bandol Rosé (86 pts) #winereview @domainelegalantin @vigneron _importers · 🥊 Round 1 of the Blind Rosé tasting tournament. This wine was defeated in the first round, not due to any flaws just going up against stiff competition· ℹ️ This wine is a blend of 50% Mourvedre, 25% Grenache, and 25% Cinsault. The domaine is farmed organically, but not certified· 👀 Pale salmon color· 👃 Medium intensity on the nose. Aromas of ocean air, underripe strawberry, underripe peach, and white flowers· 👄 The wine is dry, medium acidity, medium+ alcohol, and full body. This wine is quite weighty on the palate. Good overall texture to the wine. Flavors of underripe peach, strawberry, hay, black pepper, and floral. A slight salty sea air note on the medium length finish· 🔔 Overall solid wine. Drink this is you want more weight than Provence style, but still restrained. The alcohol was a touch hot on the palate, not actually high alcohol just how it's integrated. The body of the wine was impressive. Would have liked a touch more acidity. Good stuff 👏· #rosewine #bandol #ros séallday #roseallday #frenchwine #blindtasting
