Sipping Fine Wine

Mourvèdre (about 75%) and Grenache are blended together with a splash of Cinsault and Carignan in this ripe and spicy wine. Fruity, good balance with plum and red fruit flavors. Fine young tannins ending with a juicy fruit structure.

Mourvèdre blend. Herbal nose with red and dark fruits. No evidence of oak. Firm tannins on the palate, fruit forward with decent acidity and a long, slightly savory finish. Alcohol is well-balanced. Very Mediterranean style. Not a complex wine but enjoyable.

Good value for the $$$. Could use more tannin and structure that some quality wines from this region possess

Tough to find red Bandol for under $20, so this gets some points for value. Rustic, with hard tannins, but this was pretty nice with food. I'd like to see where this goes with some more time in bottle.

Super smooth. Love me some Bandol. It’s no Domaine Tempier, but very good. Hard to find, but worth the hunt.

Dry and bold. Hints of dried fruits.

Man the ratings are all over the place on this wine... wonder if people were drinking the same one? For me - simple but satisfying (sorta) Bandol. On the nose, typical very dark fruits, wet rocks. In the mouth, blood and iron, very dark fruit, somewhat jammy. Light and fairly fine grained tannins. Short finish. Ok wine, but not very representative of the appellation.
