2016 Gueissard Bandol | The Local Drop

2016 Gueissard Bandol

Sanary-sur-Mer, France

$38.00

A beautiful rosé of seasonal transparency, with an incredible purity and intensity of fruit, this kicks the nose with passionfruit, red currant and gooseberry, with a little saline sweat – not at all dissimilar to a smart Sauvignon. It’s a two speed wine, with a super high guzzle factor, yet to give it attention reveals serious complexity and layers.

“Faint charcuterie characters amongst sour cherry, sweet spice, briary notes, pomegranate and some oyster shell notes. The palate is lean but flavoursome, tightly wound, set around cherry pip and rosy fruit flavours with a minerally core. It’s precise, refreshing, mouthwatering stuff. Yummo, if that is a technical descriptor.” 92 points, Mike Bennie, Winefront
