A blend of 40% Mourvèdre, 30% Grenache and 30% Cinsault this is as exciting as Bandol Rosé gets. Gorgeous notes of Grapefruit pith, wildflowers and herbs de provence lead the aromas towards a mineral-rich juicy texture that displays a sharp acidic tension. The finish is crisp and briny with a mouthwatering refreshing feel. Everything I love about Bandol rosé without the intensity of an oily texture that can sometimes overshadow the wine.
Additional Notes from AOC Wines:
"Jane and Alain Constant own Domaine Ray-Jane which has been in their families since 1288. The vineyards spread over 64 acres in the terroirs of Le Castellet and La Cadiere. The newly upgraded cellar is equipped with the latest technology - thermo-regulated stainless steel tanks for maceration of all 3 wines, automatic system for pumping over the red Bandol.
Domaine Ray-Jane is certified organic. A third of the vines are 100 years old and planted on Restanques (terraces made of stones carved into the hills to prevent erosion and facilitate the natural distribution of water resources). The work in the vineyard is done without motorized tools (ploughing is done with horses and hoe). Harvest is manual."
