Mourvedre Blend

Delille Vigneron

Terre d'Ombre Vin de Pays du Mont Caume Mourvedre Blend 2018

A young, fresh, & grippy declassified Bandol. Dark red hue misleading given its medium/ medium light body; Black Currants, nice tannic spine with that grippiness. What a perfect summer red. — 9 days ago

This is a nice Mourvedre based blend from Sierra Foothills, California.

Showing black fruits with earth, licorice, oak, tobacco and light vegetables.

Medium plus in body with medium acidity and long legs.

Dry and smooth on the palate. Spicy and good by itself or with food.

Good right out of the bottle and better after 2 hours of airtime.

A blend of 64% Mourvedre, 30% Grenache and 6% counoise.

14.7% alcohol by volume.

89 points.

$85.

Forsythe Vineyard (Alban)

The Mason Edna Valley Mourvedre 2013

No idea what the “pros” were drinking to give this a 8.8 rating average, but it wasn’t this. One of my favorite wines, this used to be 100% mourvedre but now I think is usually blended a bit with other rhone varietals from John Alban’s stable. The story behind the label is great - happy to share for those interested! — 5 days ago

Domaine Tempier

Bandol Rosé Blend 2020

A rosé that will rock your socks off from the legendary producer Domaine Tempier,
Brilliant wine from start to finish. Vivid nose with fresh red berries and a zesty, grape-like bitterness, orange blossom and a whole bunch of fresh herbs over a canvas of wet stones.
Fresh and bright palate with a stoney , mineral nerve that cuts through the pronounced fruit concetration and the slight creamy viscosotiy, a layered complexity through a long stimulating finish.
As good as the legend goes, unfortunaltely a challenge to get your hands on.

La Bastide Blanche

Bandol Mourvèdre Blend Rosé 2020

Delectable Wine
9.2

Limpid orange-pink. Expressive red berry, blood orange and pit fruit aromas are accompanied by building mineral and floral nuances. Taut and energetic in the mouth, offering sappy strawberry, orange zest and lavender flavors braced by a spine of chalky minerality. Finishes silky and impressively long, with repeating mineral and floral notes. (Josh Raynolds, Vinous, July 2021)

Château Vannières

Bandol Mourvedre Blend Rosé 2020

Delectable Wine
9.1

Light orange-pink. Fresh red berries, white peach, orange zest and pungent flowers on the mineral-accented nose. Focused and energetic on the palate, offering redcurrant, nectarine and blood orange flavors that deepen and turn sweeter with air. Shows impressive energy and minerally bite on the persistent finish, which leaves lavender and pit fruit notes behind. (Josh Raynolds, Vinous, July 2021)
