Nose is intoxicating. Game, meat, blood. Huge, dense, & layered blood soaked blackberries. The best Bandol I've had.

On the nose, tangerines, strawberries, cherries, watermelon, soft chalkiness & minerals, fruit blossoms, pink roses & florals. Equal entry of fruit and strong presence of chalkiness & minerals on the palate. Ripe, lean fruits of; watermelon, cherries, strawberries & tangerine with fruits blossoms, pink roses & fresh floral bouquet. Very good mellow acidity with rich fruit & strong minerals on the finish. Photos of the estate and their large oak vats. 2016 just arrived 3 weeks ago. 50% Mourvèdre, 25% Cinsault, 25% Grentile.

Touch of the animal. Bitter plum, juicy with some grippy tannins lingering on the back. Recently have had better experiences with this producer than with Tempier red.

Needs lots of time but once open the tannin subsides and the fruit comes through. Even better on day two but challenging nonetheless. Great to see this wine evolve over two years and still have a half case to explore.
