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.

Always love the old world/modern yin yang of this wine. Tar, asphalt, deep darker berry fruit profile. Plenty of resolved tannin and medium acid.

Herbs, black cherry, cocoa, fur, forest and spice. A touch shut down from LBT, still gorgeous nose w/ classic Bandol character and structure on a more elegant and polished frame. Always a pleasure!

Pretty powerful stuff. Licorice and saddle leather, dark fruit and tarry. Little grippy. I look forward to my next bottle in another 3-4 years.

Had at home. Very good Bandol. Not the same complexity as Tempier. But nice balance of fruit and tannin.

Really showing well - not a wine ordered often here. Lovely minerality

This has some serious pop out of the glass. Blueberries, leather and boisenberry. Very fruit forward with a strong, tannic finish. A big crowd pleaser.
