GUEISSARD BANDOL ROSE
45% Mourvèdre, 35% Cinsault, 20% Grenache
It's a two speed wine, with a super high guzzle factor, yet to give it attention reveals serious complexity and layers.
Faint charcuterie characters amongst sour cherry, sweet spice, briary notes, pomegranate and some oyster shell notes. The palate is lean but flavoursome, tightly wound, set around cherry pip and rosy fruit flavours with a minerally core. It’s precise, refreshing, mouthwatering stuff. Yummo, if that is a technical descriptor.
