Overview

Made almost entirely from a direct pressing of Mourvedre, the Tête de Belier Rosé is in every way the elder sibling to the Prestige Rosé. Despite its pale color, this is a wine brimming with stone fruit flavors, minerality and a hint of garrigue and bay laurel. In some vintages a small amount of Grenache is added to the final blend, in others it is left out. Like many of the wines from Bandol – the inspiration for this cuvée – the Tête de Belier can age well in bottle, but who would want to wait?
