6 bottles of 2021 Ray Jane Bandol Rosé
Decanter Magazine recently surveyed the wide world of pink, and when the results came in? They called Domaine Ray-Jane's organically farmed Bandol Rosé -- wait for it -- THE BEST ROSÉ IN THE WORLD. Now, that's a huge claim, and "bests" in things like wine are often, admittedly, rather subjective. But Ray-Jane's family has been farming the same hillside, and making wine in the same underground cellar, since 1288; maybe 734 years of practice makes perfect!
This is gorgeous now, with nervy tension, structure, and an indisputable "fraîcheur" that makes it absolutely suitable for summer dining. (Think: creamy strawberries, citrus peel, hints of Mediterranean brush, and a mineral core.) But make no mistake -- this is no mere rosé! This has a renowned reputation for extended cellar aging, and the wise among you will grab a case at your club discount to explore over the next 3-5 years: it will blossom into a richly textured and wonderfully savory *wine,* independent of its hue. A crazy club score!
