Bandol is the smallest and most prestigious winegrowing region in Provence. It's the perfect summer wine, with aromas of peaches, floral, and citrus balanced by refreshing minerality. After one sip, our French buyer declared the Domaine Marie Berenice "delicious and affordable," and the top pick under $25. Made from a blend of Mourvedre and Grenache, Bandol Rose from the outskirts of Le Castellet are highly sought for their ability to pair well with food, as well as for their bright berry notes and clean, bracing acidity. Typically fuller and more substantial than the rest of Provence, the Marie Berenice is a "drink now," or one of the few French Rose that will benefit from a year or two of age.
"Lovely aromas of rose petals and hints of sea shells. The palate is so elegant and pure it is hard not to take another immediate sip. Florals followed by faint pink citrus, fresh herbs and saline. The finish stays elegant and goes on and on with notes of tangy strawberries." The Wine Buyer, 93 Points
