Mourvedre Blend

Château de Pibarnon (Comte de Saint Victor)

Bandol Mourvedre Blend 2020

Flexing ABVs (14.5%) with a cool waxy restraint. Where it could be gregarious and ripe fruit candy, it's waxy pale strawberries and cool whipped cream. Dried orange peels and tamed herbal undergrowth - rosemary and thyme. — 7 days ago

Tablas Creek Vineyard

Esprit de Tablas Adelaida District Mourvedre Blend 2012

10 years old…lighter in color, texture, tannin, the Tablas CdP influenced blend is in a very good point of it’s development. A touch of browning, the sweet viscus weight of this Paso blend has morphed into something thinner, more complex, more balanced., more nuanced, more interesting. Worked well with simple summer take-out pizza. I love Tablas… their entire program just keeps illustrating how to keep new world conditions and old world farming principles together. Kudos, to all the folks at Tablas and Beaucastle. — 9 days ago

Penfolds

Bin 2 South Australia Shiraz Mourvedre 2012

See 2 previous notes on Delectable. Much the same now. Very plummy on nose and palate. Meaty notes on the nose. Plum and raspberry on the palate. An excellent blend for Penfolds from their vast resources. Amazing the influence of the Mourvèdre for only being 11%. Shiraz is 89%. Paid $30 per bottle for this in 2016. Cheap for a Penfolds red. — 5 days ago

La Galope

GSM Blend 2020

A daily red for sure,

Smells of violets and cassis
This sensory proves itself again on the palette, and is enriched by dark plum and fig. Easy skin like tannin, and apricot acidity.
Medium weighted, and an easy drinker without being too ‘soft’

Domaine Tempier

Bandol Rosé Blend 2020

👃 Watermelon, cold peach, cold clementine peel, crushed rock.

👅 Under-ripe peach, cold raspberry, red currant, orange zest.

Lovely, been a while since we've grabbed this bottle, in a great spot, probably killer in 2-4Y, but I'll never know; one off purchase.

Bodegas Juan Gil

Juan Gil Jumilla Mourvedre 2019

Jumilla keeps impressing me. This region is one of the best value for money in all of Europe atm. This one displayes ripe berries, spice, citrus and gravel. A touch of French wood to give it a a nice final touch. — 15 days ago
