Blackberry, Earth, red and black fruits, Tarry, Mineral, touch of barnyard - dead animal. Aged Bandol from a good site is something special and this hits the spot. Not experienced enough with the individual vineyard Cuvées but I believe Cabassaou is considered the superior over this and La Migoua. After a while Liquorice notes with heavy spices. An enjoyable experience. Love these ultra savoury reds.

I wanted to taste the 08 and it blew my mind. So pure and focused

17/20 (92/100) Выглядит симпатичнее 2007-го. Красивый аромат с нотами вишневого и малинового варенья, кожи, ванили и молочного шоколада. Тельное с высокой кислотностью. Танины интенсивные, но не жесткие и не липкие. Кислые красные ягоды, кожа и шоколад во вкусе. Пить можно и сейчас, но лучше подождать пару лет.

Relativement déçu , le vin ne goûte pas très bien , il est encore trop massif et austère . Un léger mieux le lendemain mais je n ai absolument pas retrouvé la classe de cabassaou

Initial dark fruits on the nose with a medium intensity. After an hour or so open it delights and satisfies. Yummy
