Bandol Rouge Mourvedre Blend 2016

Forgot how much I love this wine. Gorgeous showing in its youth. Rich fruit, generous and still maintaining a presence of finesse and focus. Very “jolie.” All that lip-smacking is bound together but Tempier distinctive sauvage/earthy/herbal character. Really found the brett interlaced nicely too, very complimentary. Roasted black cherry and plum fruit, black fig, fur, worn leather, animal hide, tar, cooling herbs, cloves, garrigue. Found its grip to refined, more supportive than dominating. — 9 days ago

Bandol Rosé Mourvedre Blend 2017

Excellent. Not Tempier level seriousness but this is damn good rose. Mineral, bright fruit, lively acidity. Great juice. — a month ago

Bandol Rosé 2017

What better day to open this one up then on Mother’s Day. This has been in the back of my fridge since last August (I swear, I do clean my fridge 🙄) and I think the wait to open was a million times worth it! Orange, cranberry and the weight and roundness that wasn’t there a year ago. Always a winner but I’m glad I actually held onto a bottle for a bit. — 8 days ago

Clos Cypres Priorat Vieilles Vignes Cariñena 2015

I really enjoyed this!

PnP. Dark cherry color. Nose had spice, earth, and gravel. Reminded me of another wine I’ve had, maybe Domaine Tempier Bandol.

Wine was a mix between Burgundy, Bordeaux, and Napa Cab. Nice structure and complexity. Deep cherry fruit, allspice, and dirt. Finish was medium.

Great last minute find!!

Cuvée La Tourtine Bandol Mourvedre Blend 1993

En magnum. Rich, earthy, Provençal herbs, still quite youthful and fresh, long finish, really an amazingly fine Bandol that still needs aging!! — 2 months ago

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.
