When you see the word “Bandol” on a label and you see the pink wine in the bottle, you know you’re pretty much guaranteed an excellent bottle of wine. While (and for good reason) many people immediately think of Tempier as the best Bandol rose on the market, Domaine Gros Nore gives them a run for their money. Winemaker Alain Pascal is described by Kermit Lynch as “a kind of Provencal Hercules...That he is a former boxer and an avid hunter should be no surprise, yet his physique matches both his spirit and his wine—this gentle giant and his cuvées are all heart.” While Alain and his brother Guy farm sixteen hectares of land in Bandol, for years their prized fruit was sold to other producers in the region, and a small amount was bottled for family consumption. Upon the death of his father in 1997, Alain founded Domaine Gros Nore and has since become a serious contender in the region. His wines show incredible power and concentration, but underneath the big exterior lies definitive elegance and soul. The rose is made of a blend of Mouvedre, Grenache, Cinsault, and Clairette, with Mouvedre being the driving force. It is fermented and matured in stainless steel tanks. If you need to scratch that Bandol rose itch, this wine is a great way to do it.
