2007 Château Pradeaux Bandol Rosé (France, Provence, Bandol)

Bandol, France, Provence, Rosé


This is even better than the 2006, and easily the best Pradeaux Rose I’ve ever had. Salmon pink color that lures one to believe that it’ll be a thin quaffer of a wine. Nothing could be further from the truth. Strawberry, red currant, minerals, lavender and sea breeze on the nose. On the palate, I could guess this as a red wine if I tasted it completely blind. Explosive on the palate and the most remarkable minerality, crushed rock, gravel sensation. Finish is ultra long for rose. I’ll amend my earlier statement. The best rose I’ve ever had, period.

I am not a professional wine taster, nor do I have any professional training in the wine trade. I am a wine enthusiast who has spent countless hours tasting wines of many different styles. My palate is not aligned with a single wine critic, and I call all wines "as I taste them". My site is a source of tasting notes and wine recommendations as well as warnings without conflict of interest. You'll just have to figure out how your palate aligns with mine. My palate generally tends to veer towards Old-World wines that put a premium on terroir and lovely balance and finesse, rather than raw power...please keep that in mind as you read my notes.
