The Hecht Bannier Bandol is a rosé for fall and winter, based on nearly 60% of Mourvedre, the wine is complex, with more structure than a traditional rosé in Provence. This is a wine of great, even exquisite, finesse which, unlike many rose wines, will age beautifully in bottle. Young, the wine offers the aroma and flavor of blood orange and dried apricot. With bottle age, after five years, the wine will gain in richness, power and depth.
Terroir: Sourced from Mourvedre grown in the finest, coolest and latest-ripening sites of the Bandol appellation.
"In Aix-en-Provence, we pair this wine with typical provençal dishes: fresh grilled tuna and bottarga, gently fried zucchini flowers or perhaps a puree of chickpeas with spring garlic and saffron or a fritto misto." —Gregory Hecht

The 2016 Bandol Ros contains a hefty 60% Mourvdre, well above the minimum 20% required by the appellation. It's a medium-bodied, silky-textured wine, floral, complex and long, with hints of crushed stone, raspberries and cherries.
