04 Domaine Tempier, Bandol Rose

With the minerality of a bubble-free Andre Clouet Brut Rose, this is a provocative pink nearly vexed by its allegience to terroir. The aroma is chalky, tart, sharp, and steely. The flavors brand into the sides of my tongue: sea salt, grenadine, and strawberries macerated in lemon juice -- all coated with a whisp of tannins. This is what Chablis would taste like if it were a rose.
