  • Absolutely great aged Bandol. Beautiful color: crytal clear ruby, slight bricking. The aroma was very clean, gorgeous: candied cherry and red fruits, slightly meaty/earthy. The tannins were fully resolved, still plenty of sweet ripe fruit, no alcohol heat. Great mid-palate presence: silky and smooth, nice acidity for lift. Good length.

    Beautiful old school Tempier the likes of which aren't made these days with the new wine maker who seems to strive for bigger and riper wines. This beauty was perfectly aged and balanced.

  • Absolutely terrific juice. Beautiful ruby color with a rustic nose of dark fruits, rubber and burning vines. Beefy, yet red in character. There is good heft but also great acid - a food wine. This screams for a piece of meat off the grill. (93)

  • Pretty great. It's possible that I waited too long as the power of the wine had thinned, especially in comparison to a 2007 Bandol Rouge that we drank alongside. We decanted the bottle for about an hour before drinking it. Still, it what it had lost in power it had gained in character, which at times was up in the finest Burgundy or Bordeaux realm - each sip a kind of moment to be savored. All in all a superb wine.

  • Something not quite right here. There's fair bit of bretty funk and and also some noticeable nail polishy VA. Not undrinkably flawed, but clearly not what it's supposed to be.

  • Gav lunch, Drew's bottle. Not so funky, more Bordeaux-like and elegant, especially on the nose and long finish. Excellent.
