Blackberry, Earth, red and black fruits, Tarry, Mineral, touch of barnyard - dead animal. Aged Bandol from a good site is something special and this hits the spot. Not experienced enough with the individual vineyard Cuvées but I believe Cabassaou is considered the superior over this and La Migoua. After a while Liquorice notes with heavy spices. An enjoyable experience. Love these ultra savoury reds. — a day ago
Nose has mashed red table grapes, washed raspberry and crushed granite.
Palate has cherry skin, first Summer strawberry picked, limestone pebbles, Spring violets and wet beach sand.
One of the most expressive rosés from Provence I can really recall ever tasting. Generally we expect drier styled wines. We bought these last year, and my preference is buy and hold most rosé, one year minimum. What a year has done with this wine since we initially tasted! $10 WTH, really? GD, I don't have enough! — 22 days ago
Always a fav. First taste of 2015 vintage, nice balance for the year, extraction is deft and carries some finesse to it. As usual, complex, layered, full of goutte de terroir. Layers of cherry from crushed to soaked, slight hint of prune, raspberry confiture, game, fur, roast beef, juniper, forest and cedar, pure garrigue, licorice root, ceylon cinnamon, chaparral, powdered sugar, 5 spice, singed tobacco, graphite, bitter cocoa. Still taut, the tannins need time to relax, but I think they will always have persistence in the wine. Ok with me. — 9 days ago
