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.

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. — 2 days ago

It is not only the first real sunny day in our garden that makes this a good rosé. It is simply well made. Beautiful pale as Provence rosés are. Some flowers like roses and strawberries in the nose. Tastes simply excellent. If you can buy it for the right price it is in my opinion a very good glass of wine. — 20 days ago
Nez sujet à débat plein et puissant avec des arômes de cacao et d Olive noire pour certaine acidité volatile déséquilibrant le vin
Bouche juteuse gourmande et sudiste réglisse et pointe animale. Pour certain volatile marquée finale encore rugueuse
