It is early days for this @William Hughes but its already supple and open, almost loose knit.

Château Pradeaux

Bandol Mourvedre 2012

The pinnacle of Mourvèdre for us. Taking into account that it’s certifiable infanticide to drink a Pradeaux < 10 years of age, a decant will calm the animal spirits, and besides, there are pleasures to youth, hardly wasted. Un vin sauvage, earth, clay, bramble, meat, leather, long finish, bitterness but not too astringent. Drink from here to eternity. — 19 days ago

Domaine de la Begude

Bandol Rouge Mourvedre Blend 2014

Lovely wine. Cracked pepper and black fruit on the nose. Leather, bbq and black fruit in the mouth. Dusky tannins and broad acidity. Long finish. Well made and correct for Bandol. Could easily go 10+ more years. — 6 days ago

Domaine le Galantin

Bandol Mourvedre Blend Rosé 2017

Delectable Wine
9.0

An outstanding value this 2017 pink Bandol is refreshingly lithe for this powerful vintage. It displays juicy red fruit character, buffered by a subtle citrusy quality that adds nerviness and cut. A sexy floral note lends complexity to this bright, energetic and classic Provençal rosé. (Josh Raynolds, Vinous, August 2018) $21.00 — 23 days ago

Domaine de la Tour du Bon

Bandol Mourvedre Blend 2014

Domaine rests atop a limestone plateau in Le Brûlat du Castellet, in the northwestern corner of the A.O.C. Bandol. Hocquard family has been farming this land since 1968, currently run by Agnès Henry. Tried ‘14 &’15 together. A blend of about 75% Mourvèdre with the rest Grenache, Cinsault & Carignan. Deep red with dark berry fruit and spice aromas. On the palate flavors of blackberry, black pepper & herb spice. Fine tannins, lingering with a fragrant ending. Consistent quality. Tasting Sample. — 24 days ago
