Overview of the Wine
Before acquiring vineyards, Georges Delille trained as a sommelier in Paris. In 1963, he bought what would become Domaine de Terrebrune, a property in Ollioules, just east of Bandol, framed by the Mediterranean and the mountain called Gros-Cerveau (Big Brain), dotted with olive groves and scenic views—an idyllic spot.

During the years following the declaration of A.O.C. Bandol (1941), mass overhauling and reconstruction of vineyards were commonplace, and vignerons were eager to revive the noble Mourvèdre grape. Georges spent ten years just renovating the property; he terraced hillsides, refashioned the masonry, replanted vineyards following the advice of Lucien Peyraud, designated soils to lie dormant and regenerate, and built a new cellar. In 1980, his son Reynald joined him after finishing winemaking school, and together they launched their first bottled vintage of Domaine de Terrebrune, which Reynald named in honor of the rich, brown soils they farm.

Winemaker's Tasting Notes
Domaine de Terrebrune Bandol Rose has an exotic nose dominated by pomelo, then honeysuckle and wet roses emerge, and then develops the complexity of a potpourri of flower petals. The palate is marked by the delicate structure of its bitters. Its intensely fruity flavors are enhanced by the minty and peppery side.

This racy, expressive Rosé will develop its full potential in harmony with the fresh and exotic summer cuisine, or structured and complex dishes.
