1999 Château Pradeaux Bandol

Mourvedre Blend, Mourvedre more

7/4/2015 - beatles wrote: 88 points

Mature - and very local; barnyard, sweet, heavyfruit, some garrigue, a bit of a fatso, really, but jolly and likeable enough for what it is. This is not the Bandol, Bandol would serve the Queen, and i would not hold on to this expecting more, rather enjoy it now or in a couple of years - at wintertime with food, daube, say ...

Interesting wine, not as bretty as other bottles but nice tobacco, leather and herbs on the nose. Medium bodied and rustic with moderate fruit, blood and iron. A bit past peak but holding well. 88 points

Light pink with a peach color. Tropical fruit, strawberry and then an earthy component to the nose. These come through on the palate as well. Drank on the deck before, during and after grilling out. Interesting Rose. All Cinsault. Reasonable good depth of flavor even when chilled.

A nice savory note to go with seashell, pebble, and hints of blood orange, peach, but really more of a structured/mineral rose than the usual underripe red fruit. It has medium plus acid with slight hint of plumpness as well as tannin. Probably a rose for in 1-2 yr and certainly one of the more serious while remaining a freshness.

Colour no longer youthful. But the wine is still taught, young and not quite ready. Amazing vigour. Better after a long decant. Lovely fruit and character. Really good... now it just needs some real secondary notes. 90 on this occasion as it is a bit caught between two phases, but a few more points if it continues to age well and doesn't lose its fruit (no sign of that yet).

[Half bottle left with the cork in for 24 hours. Still good the next day, softened slightly. No real loss of fruit. This really can take more age in the cellar.]

Drinking great. Acid has fallen off a bit and the roundness has really started to come through. Lots of light fruit; grapefruit, white peach, kiwi, and a bit of mango. Very refreshing.

Needs some time to open. More savory than fruity with stemy notes with fennel, a slight peach note and huge granite like minerality. Dense and structured and a bit tight.

Nice nose, a bit complex Flowers, anise, and strawberry. On taste nice spine, with hint of sweetness which bothered me. I like it but a bit too neutral and sweet compared to previous versions. Still very nice with a short to medium finish. 'i always question the price point though. I think it is cheaper in France.

Pale salmon color. Refined and subtle on the nose, with gentle strawberry and raspberry fruit aromas and floral notes of rose petal and perfume. Dry and mineral on the palate, with just a hint of the fruit and a refreshing, bracing texture.

Wonderful. I wish I had more and could continue the Bandol rosé aging curve experiment. Complex aromas of fruit and savory elements that verge with air on the animal fur of aged red Bandol, and cinnamon. Perfect balance and grace on the palate, just lovely in texture. There is real potency that is based on good material, nothing artificial. Finish is long and spicy and snappy with acidity. Lovely lovely wine.

1997 Château Pradeaux Bandol

Mourvedre Blend, Mourvedre more

4/25/2015 - pbaek wrote: NR

The last glass, poured from a decanter 4 hours after opening the bottle, was by far the best. Less rustic than previous bottles, this is still a tight wine that really needs air to open up. The fruit is dark toned, towards the brown end of the spectrum and there's marks of tobacco, black olives and meat. A serious wine, by no means heavy, just very complex, one that challenges the mind. Will certainly keep and may even improve with more cellar time.

There continues to be a bitter green note (stems? unripe seeds?) that continues to hold this wine back. The tannins don;t seem fully ripe but there are correct notes of sour red cherry and slight spice notes.

My first impression was very surprising as I was expecting more earthy and barnyard characteristics. This wine was much more on the fruity side with a big nose of black fruits with a slight touch of cinnamon. The mouth feel was very balanced between the alcohol and tannins. The palate contained dark plum, black cherries, and a hint of grilled steak. Overall, a very enjoyable bottle of wine that is now in its sweet spot for drinking.

Decanted for 2 plus hours, minimal nose and heavy tannin on the palate, very dry with limited fruit and some acidity. Purchased at the vineyard in 2007 and not quite as enjoyable as the fuller 2002.

The nose was the most promising feature of this wine. There was a mix of earth and red cherry.
- The palate was very tired. The red cherry fruit is bitter and seems dried out and tired. The tannins are bitter and leave a bitter finish. Perhaps this needed more decanter time but the wine was bad enough that I didn't see the need for it. I'll try again with another bottle but this bottle was not good.

Opened two hours prior to tasting. Provençal herbs, game, iron, rare beef, and coffee—an extremely fragrant bouquet that just keeps giving. In the mouth, so incredibly tightly packaged. Absolutely fierce tannins, but a rush of acid keeps everything balanced and fresh. Strangely, this felt as approachable, if not more approachable, than the 1989 and 1990 old vines bottlings, both drunk within the last year. Fantastic quality for less than $40 a bottle. Rated 1 on a scale of -1 to 3.

Why does a wine's color matter—it just needs to smell and taste good, right? Normally I'd agree with this sentiment, but there's something about the color of Pradeaux's rosé, a beautiful copper/salmon, that significantly enhances the overall experience. Intoxicating aromas and flavors of toffee, ferrous notes, turned earth, honeysuckle, wild strawberries, vanilla hints, and dried honey. Tense acid. This made me long for an outdoor brunch with a Provençal herb omelette. Rated 2 on a scale of -1 to 3.

Could use a few more years in the bottle. Tannins were heavier at the end, but some blueberry on the nose and at the front of the pallate. Other than in need of some time, a very nice bottle made from a very old grape.

Enjoyed with Valentine's Day dinner 2015. Wow, what a unique little wine from a mostly forgotten about winegrowing part of France! This wine was full out ready to go from the start. Decanted for an extreme amount of sediment. The nose was black cherry and blackberry with lavender, herbs, and a tough of nitrogen. Thinking I was going to have a nitrogenous wine on my hands (like some of these little French winegrowing regions can produce!) I buckled down to prepare for the huge nitrogen notes and received none from start to finish! The front of this wine is black cherry tart on some occasions and blackberry on other occasions. Fleshy, kind of "purple" as this one turns to the mid-palate. This is maybe a touch flabby in the middle. But wow oh wow. This one finishes with these incredible cranberry and dried lavender notes among other mostly unidentified herbs in that wonderful, yet extremely unique, and rather tannic, finish. Can't ever say that I've had a wine like this. I have no idea how many more years this one has on it, but I would guess it probably has a few more with proper cellaring. I am very doubtful that this one will improve any more in the bottle, but considering I am quite ignorant to this region, I really can't say other than Drink Up!! Enjoy this one because it's in a good place right now!!
