  • From magnum. From a lighter vintage which makes this more accessible at 10 years of age. A nose of tobacco, leather, animal fur and dark plums. Nicely mature and complex palate. Jesper compares this to mature Bordeaux. At BBQ/pool party chez Jesper and Maria at Mandlieu.

  • Excellent. Dark brambly fruits, leather, meats, really nice flavor impact and just a bit of tannins left to be resolved. Rustic in the best sense of the word. This is just starting to enter a nice drinking window, particularly if paired with the appropriate food. Really enjoyed this. Drink now or hold, you'll be rewarded either way.

  • A very tasty French wine for someone who drinks mostly California cabs. Earthy and chochlaty, with a brownish color. Light on the palate, with a medium aftertaste. A bit syrupy, like eating raisins instead of grapes.

  • Very good showing last night. Deep purple color. On the nose, this starts off with black fruit, smoke and leather. Complex palate: black plum, black olives, licorice, leather, smoke and sea salt from La Camarque. Somehow I get a sense that Pradeaux displays it terroir better in 'lesser' vintages. Big, voluminous palate feel. Rustic wine for sure - will not please everybody, but if you want to taste what old fashioned Bandol taste like - this is it. Great match for Susanne's duck stew with rigatoni.
