Bandol, Provence

Domaine du Gros' Noré

Bandol Mourvedre Blend 2012

A great red Bandol.

Showing black fruits with earth, cedar, leather, chocolates, tobacco, licorice peppercorn, spices and green vegetables.

Full bodied and bold with medium plus acidity and long legs.

Great finish with fine grained tannins and tangy cranberries.

Reminds me of a spicy Napa Cabernet.

14.5% alcohol by volume.

92 points.

Domaine Tempier

La Migoua Bandol Mourvedre Blend 2005

Tasted in the cellar at Tempier.

Nose just keeps evolving. Dried cherries, raisins, dried rose pedal, tobacco, iron, liver paté, asphalt, dried green herbs. Fantastically complex.

Palate delivers much of the same. Great concentration of dark fruit with strong, but ripe tannins that indicate that this wine has quite a lot of time left. Notes of thyme, oregano, and black tea seem to linger forever.

Killer stuff. My only regret is that I don't have a bottle for myself.

Bandol Rosé 2015

The 2015 Tempier Rosé is drinking marvelously after a few years. The grapes used to make this rosé come from selected parcels where the vines are on average 20-years-old. This wine immediately awakens to aromas of rose water, lemon zest, smoke and ripe guava that are simply sensational. The palate unveils a wonderful concentration and a gorgeous, soft texture. Guava purée and red cherry candy flavors connect with suggestions of blood orange toward the back end. Truly delightful to savor now, this beautiful Rosé will continue to evolve in the cellar over the next decade. Drink 2019-2028- 92 — a month ago
