Delicious. It’s mostly Mourvèdre but it’s different than a Bandol in the it’s seems more open and a bit less structured. Lots of garrigue/roasted herbs/iodine on the nose. Dark berries underneath. Concentrated and very savory in the mouth. Very clingy and long. A fair amount of relatively soft tannin, with acids on the lowish side. Really good value, if you can find it.
UPDATE: Night 2 the palate is showing less savory and way more deep fruit. That suggests to me that this needs air of drink in the short term and also will age for a few years. — 5 months ago
The 2013 Clos de Vougeot Vieilles Vignes Grand Cru, picked from 5 October according to Pierre Labet, has a fragrant bouquet, fresher than many other tasted, pure raspberry and wild strawberry fruit, nicely integrated oak. The palate is less rustic than many others, finely balanced, with moderate depth and just a bit of hardness on the finish that one can easily abide. Lovely, though would I cellar long-term? Probably no. (Neal Martin, Vinous, October 2023)
