Sipping Fine Wine

Domaine rests atop a limestone plateau in Le Brûlat du Castellet, in the northwestern corner of the A.O.C. Bandol. Hocquard family has been farming this land since 1968, currently run by Agnès Henry. Tried ‘14 &’15 together. A blend of about 75% Mourvèdre with the rest Grenache, Cinsault & Carignan. Deep red with dark berry fruit and spice aromas. On the palate flavors of blackberry, black pepper & herb spice. Fine tannins, lingering with a fragrant ending. Consistent quality. Tasting Sample.

Cold evening! Bandol is rich, full Mourvèdre. This is tannic, alcoholic yet fresh and fruity. A good bone warmer on a cold night!

Brett bomb extraordinaire, good stuff underneath but you'd need a jackhammer to get to it.

Nice and easy to drink while sitting outside of a beautiful July evening. Plummy and delicious.
