Bandol Rosé and Goat Cheese Provençal Pairings for Summer Nights

Contributor blog post by David Scott Allen:

While summer isn’t the only season to drink rosé, it is incredibly refreshing on a hot summer evening… and that is something we know well in Tucson. Sometimes, it is so hot in the evening (lately, our temperatures have been hovering at 115°F or 46°C) that we don’t want a full meal – perhaps just apéro with some nice wine, a little cheese, and a few friends.

…Continue reading here for David’s Cocoa & Lavender wine and cheese post, and learn about the Bandol wine appellation. The chilled Bandol rosé from Domaine de Terrebrune was a perfect provencal wine pairing with his goat cheese logs (apparently that was not the case with burgers).

It was love at first sight when my family and I arrived in the charming village of Lourmarin for a short vacation, nearly 20 years ago. We returned home to Portsmouth, New Hampshire and the next thing I knew we were planning a much longer sojourn in that village and making arrangements to enroll our daughter in the local school there. That led to buying a maison de village— actually two, then a courtyard, a parking spot, and a bergerie— in our favorite Provençal village where we (readily) adopted that certain joie de vivre, established dear friendships, and, to this day, endeavor to blend in with the crowd at Café Gaby.

We no longer own property in Lourmarin, but we continue to hang our hats there frequently and gather fodder for our souls and for The Modern Trobaors and Provence WineZine. There is never a shortage.

The Modern Trobaors , conceived in 2008, is about all things Provence: its markets, hilltop villages, lavender, art, literature, culture, history, food, wine, and news. Provence WineZine, launched in August 2014, focuses on wines from the regions of Provence and the Southern Rhône Valley—with a special emphasis on Provence's world-renowned rosés—and the men and women who make them.
