« BiB means Summer | Main | Moulin des Costes (Bandol) »

August 25, 2005



I've never taste aged rose wine before. It sounds fun! The orange color in the glass was beautiful. I was googling about Bandol. It's said that Bandol is the nicest place producing red wine in Provence. Did you taste some red too?


I've enjoyed 5 year old Chateau Simone rosé and I am determined to learn what happens to Eric Nicolas' Giroflées (NV/2005) over a few more years. Results from the 2004 Giroflées have been encouraging. (Residual sugar probably helps preserve it.)

The photo of the La Ladiere shows the date, doesn't it? (about the crest... "Recolte 1955")


the label is not very sharp on the picture and it could look like 1955, but it is 1988, I checked it on the original file.I wouldn't have forgotten if we had tasted a 1955...
Thanks for noticing.

In June of 1996, chez Domaine du Val des Rois, in Valreas, I tasted a 1969 rose that my host, Romain Bouchard, had made, from Grenache, Syrah, and Gamay, and it was breath-taking! Only very slightly past its prime, but still vivid and precise, and riveting. After which we tasted a Tavel, from...1968--a terrible year--and it was more tired than the Bouchard wine, but amazingly still quite interesting.

A fascinating experience, thank you for sharing. I greatly enjoyed reading about this, particularly about Domaine de la Laidiere as I sell this wine. I've written my own blog posting on the 08 and linked your story to mine: http://tinyurl.com/lxqz32

I long for the day when I can sit down and enjoy a 20 year old Bandol rose.
