Bandol: pink or white.
It’s a slight culture shock as a moron gringo in the South of France when wines by the glass are identified not by producer or even by grape but simply by place. Bandol didn’t mean much to me as a place, I drove through it en route to Toulon from Marseille on le D559 but that was about it. Probably it was the fact that it was a vague homonym for bandit drew me to it — which is admittedly kind of lame, but the wine seemed to deliver. Any more than the progeny of any other Mediterranean town would have? Je ne sais pas. But this, this wine right here, is a phenomenal rosé.
50% Mourvèdre, 40% Cinsault, 10% Grenache from Bandol. — 2 days ago
Från 7,9 hektar på Puligny-sidan. Komplex profil. Päron, fänkål, gräsig, lite exotisk, bakverk. Nyanserade fat. Fint samspel mellan doft och smak. Snyggt avslut. Inte så varm som mycket Pinot smakar från 2017. — 2 days ago
Fresh lemon peel, sweet yellow apple, cold-wet granite, medium short finish.
This bottle was opened by my wife, four days ago, and she was nice enough to save me a little to try after I got home from a recent business trip. I really need to try this fresh, she noted it was more expressive on day's one and two. — 19 hours ago
@7 euro a glass my hopes weren’t high. I really didn’t have many expectations, I was just hoping for a quaffable wine. To my drunken surprise, this wine kicked a little ass. Dried cherries, cranberries, pomegranate and an earthy funk that kept me interested. Gonna grab a bottle and revisit at a later date. — 21 days ago
