Wine Wednesdays - Domaine Tempier 2014 Bandol Rosé

One more rosé, because temps are in the high 80s here in NYC and I'm really not ready to let go of summer.  I may have saved the best for last, Domaine Tempier is often considered the gold standard when it comes to classic Bandol rosé.

Comprised of Mouvedre, Grenache, Cinsault, and Carignan, the wine is the perfect salmon pink color, with a nose of both fruit and floral notes.  The palette is a bit more substantial than other rosé, with tastes of stone fruit and a hint of spice on the finish.  While many rosé are so light and easily enjoyed on their own, this one is a great pairing for food.  We enjoyed a cheese plate with my new favorite Saenkanter Gouda, it was delicious!




As many of you know, I recently moved into my very own apartment.  You may have seen from my Instagram that I hit up the Brimfield Antique market over the weekend.  I scored some serious finds and can't wait to share before/after decorating pictures!  This wine was well deserved after a 3 hour drive in a Uhaul and unloading on Saturday night!
