esbrown reviewed Domaine du Gros'Noré Bandol Rosé 2006 on July 30, 2007
What a rosé, if that is what you want to call it since the color is closer to the flesh of raw salmon than to any pink wine. Aromas jump from the glass in a wash of white peach, spicy herbs and a dash of orange zest. The palate is a long, slow churn of sweet raspberries and cream, along with nuances of chalky minerality, bright tangerine-tinged acidity and a finish that packs a wallop for such a light feeling wine. I was very impressed.
