Dark salmon, almost orange color. Tangy acidity, but softer than expected. Typical Bandol, which we love. There was a 2013 of the same wine at the tasting, and it was brighter, fresher and drinking better than this one.
magnificent copper (exaggerated by ambient early evening light); melon, earth & washed berries; med+ weight; watermelon & fruity-sweet strawberries on entry, becomes slightly angular, herbal & red-soiled, w/med acidity & length; fruit-driven, but well-balanced w/nuanced undertones
savory rustic tart w/caramelized onion, tomato marmalade & button chanterelles, rosemary, serrano ham
3/30/14 deep copper-colored w/bronzing edges; citrus zest, mulled fruits & wild herb nose; med/+ bodied; pink grapefruit, watermelon, muddled strawberry, a little flabby today, w/decent mineral & moderate acidity; showing less well-defined than last, drink up. (88)
