Recommended: open, drink small glass, put cork back in, forget about it for two days. Or age it another 5-10 years, if you have that level of super human patience. I don't. #livesuptohype #bandol #decantthis #cellar #mourvèdre at it's finest.

Cuvee Classique
A young wine, giver it 3 years, 5 would be better and check back. Black fruits, spices, good concentration and structure. Tastes cleaner than vintages past, less cellar funk.

Mourvèdre rules. Good to air for many hours with young wines.
