2018 Cellier des Dauphins "Réserve" Côtes du Rhône

A blend of 50% Grenache and 25% each of Syrah and Grenache, brought up in one-third each foudre, barrels, and concrete eggs, it offers a vivid bouquet of violet, ground pepper, bouquet garni, and both red and blue fruits.

Winery notes: "For me, the best rosés in the world have a bit of 'unbearable lightness of being,' where terrestrial weightiness and fruit are buoyed upward by leavening acidity and perfume. This is what we strive to achieve with Lulu, and the 2019 might be the best rendition of that vision out of the 12 we’ve made. All whole-cluster pressed and composed of 65% Mataro from old vines in Oakley and 35% Grenache from even older vines in Mendocino, this is classic Lulu. Pale salmon in color, the 2019 is a lithe and limpid rosé of both elegance and weight, whe...

The name of the estate is the first indication of its long, illustrious past.

It certainly has outstanding potential."

Jeb Dunnuck writes: "Easily the most widely recognized estate in Bandol, Domaine Tempier has been run by the Peyraud family since 1936. Today, with the passing of Lucien Peyraud in 1996 and the retirement of sons Francois and Jean-Marie, the estate is run by the tall, energetic and talented Daniel Ravier—who speaks with a refreshing honesty and humility. Looking at the reds, the estate fashions four cuvees, a classic Bandol from a mix of terroirs, and three single vineyards—La Migoua, La Tourtine and Cabassaou."

Producer's notes: "Grapes bunches are fully de-stemmed. Cold maceration before fermentation for 12 hours. Two micro-oxygenations per day and a rack-and-return ('délestage'). The fermented wine (with skins) is then warmed for a short period before emptying the vat and pressing the skins. Aromas of black and red berries on the nose. On the palate, subtle notes of spice and liquorice with a hint of black olive, enveloped in velvety tannins."
