Château Pradeaux 2019 Bandol RoséRegular price £22.95
The modern template for Provence's most famous wine, Bandol, was created in 1941 by Lucien Peyraud of Domaine Tempier and Arlette Portalis of Château Pradeaux. Together, they defined the rules for the appellation, putting the Mourvèdre grape variety at its heart. They remain jointly the best producers in the region, bastions of tradition producing benchmark wines. Pradeaux make the best rosé in Bandol. Its salmon colour and deep, complex flavours mark it out as a truly fine wine - richer and more structured than Tempier's. It is delicious after a year or so in bottle, but develops even greater complexity with further ageing.
