Bandol, Provence

Domaine du Gros' Noré

Bandol Mourvedre Blend 2014

This is the 6th or 7th batter in your line-up who consistently comes through with the game winning hit more than the big boppers. Youthful opulence and grainy cherry tar. It’s herbaceous and curvaceous and I’m pairing it with mushroom ravioli and “The Staircase” on Netflix tonight...the Betta fish got shutout. — 3 days ago

Be careful with that Staircase.

Full expression of Mouvedre at its best. This beautiful Bandol delivers black berry, dried prunes with gravel notes. 2015 might be still young but awesome! — 20 days ago

La Bastide Blanche

Bandol Rosé Mourvèdre Blend 2017

First of the 2017. Light nose of strawberry/herbs. Not as flabby as past vintages. More herbs, strawberries on the palate. Color is like a pale salmon tea rose. Ideal in magnum. Will see how this develops. — 21 hours ago

Château de Castillon

Bandol Rosé Blend 2015

Because it’s freaking hot in Texas! This is delicious; great nose of melon and strawberry; palate of the same with minerality and sharp acid kick; not for the faint of heart as this isn’t a simple Rose. — 11 days ago
