Domaine La Bastide Blanche Bandol Rose
The rosé, produced about 80,000 bottles a year, is composed of Cinsault and Grenache Mourvedre. It is obtained by direct pressing of Mourvèdre and maceration of 24 hours of Grenache and Cinsault. Malolactic fermentation will be based varieties. The wines will be raised from 4 to 10 months in tank before placing on the market.
Every January, this cuvée is assembled by Peter Weygandt at the domaine with Stéphane Bourret (wine-maker) and the Bronzo family so every year the blend is a little different, but the quality and signature "Bastide Blanche Bandol rosé" character never strays. Dominant Mourvèdre with about equal parts Cinsault and Grenache from hand-harvested grapes on clay-limestone soil with cailloux, yielding only about 36hL/ha. About 1100 cases produced
