  • Just checking in on this young rascal. More refined than rustic pleasures, a fabulous wine and a most brilliant value for money.

    Raw wood, ample tannins, balancing acids and fine fruit make this wine almost into a sinful pleasure. WOW!

    ...only 10 btls to go...

  • exciting nose with juicy dark fruit/blackberries, notes of horse manure, cedar and herbs. nice attack and balance. a bit hollow on the palate however, doesn't quiet deliver on the promise of complexity and body made by the initial swirl. Good nonetheless, and a great QPR!

  • Deep, even ruby. Full, fruity aromatics-blackberry jam and blueberry. Full bodied, smooth with the fruit as above, some spice and grilled meat, a whiff of ground coffee, and ripe tannins. OK, this may not be the wildest wine ever from this appellation, but for someone raised on old style Tempier, this is suave, polished Bandol. Very enjoyable now but room to improve. Well done.

  • Dark red, tannic nose. Easy drink but full bodied. Notes of cherry, berries, chocolate. Little tannins, but overall little complexity and fairly short finnish.

  • Based on others' notes here, and how amazingly young this is for a Bandol, did a very long (5 hour) decant. A taste right out of the bottle was dominated by mouth puckering tannins. By the dinner hour those had abated abit, allowing some of the Bandol perfume and taste to emerge. Nose: sour cherries and a bit of leather; taste - raisins, dried cherries, prune, with a stemmy, green vegetal character that is typically Bandol that you either love or hate (I love it, but admit it's an acquired taste). Not a terribly long finish but still a powerful wine. Needs at least 5 years more to truly shine, but very drinkable -- with long decant -- now.
