Domaine Tempier 2007 Bandol Rosé

I have at last tasted my Bandol rosé ...the bottle i sought out over a year ago while visiting my sister in San Francisco. Bandol didn't disappoint, and that $60 US dollar bottle of wine was everything i had painted it in my mind to be....smooth, rich, easy.

More please...yes please.

After reading the book "Alice Waters and Chez Panisse" not only was i fascinated with the foodie revolution that was instigated by Alice Waters, i also became fascinated with her restaurant, Chez Panisse, and her addiction to Bandol rosé.

I have yet, even after numerous trips to San Francisco, to dine at Chez Panisse, but i long for the day when i'm able to sit down and indulge in one of the week night dinner eat what is local, what is simple, and what has been simply transformed into something magnificent.

For instance, this would have been tonight's offering:

Thursday, June 11 $75
Grilled asparagus with breadcrumbs, garden lettuces, and farm egg
California sea bass a la plancha with all-i-oli
Roasted Red Wattle heritage pork loin with glazed Chino Ranch turnips, greens and fava beans
Pluot ice cream pavlova with peaches and berries
