Really chewy tannins for the age with this producer, but it eventually settled down w some air. Seemed much more like the structure of its Kermit cousin at Tempier vs what I expect from younger Gros Nore bottlings. Pleasantly surprised. This could go another 10 years easily.

Still dense and structured, especially for producer who’s wines I find a little more immediate and generous. A distinctive old barrel character was incredibly apparent on day 1, coupled with an insane amount of crushed mint and talcum made for an interesting take. Today the wine was much more behaved, stewed black cherry, , prune, fermented sausage, tar, dried herbs, fur and leather. Can really sense the sunshine in this wine. Bœuf Carottes for the win 😋

Rich & velvety smooth on the palate with big dark plum, chocolate cherries, dried herbs and mushroom. Pairing with garlicky lamb sirloins. Happy Friday.

Wine 2 of the Daube Provençal dinner. So much character. So minerally and iodine on the nose, dark blackberry extract fruit too. Rich and clingy in the mouth but with nice acidity and the tannins there but not obtrusive. Nice!

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.

92 points.

Savory Mourvèdre with beautiful structure and length. Took several hours to open up but paired wonderfully with hanger steak with a charred scallion sauce. Earth. Has years ahead of it.

This is the 6th or 7th batter in your line-up who consistently comes through with the game winning hit more than the big boppers. Youthful opulence and grainy cherry tar. It’s herbaceous and curvaceous and I’m pairing it with mushroom ravioli and “The Staircase” on Netflix tonight...the Betta fish got shutout.
