  • Bandols (Trent's): Spice and dark cherries on the nose. Dark cherries on the palate with some heat. Firm tannins. Seemed to be a lot there but hiding. It did start to open up later in the night. Others liked it more a this got three first place votes although it finished middle of the pack in group voting.

  • This in my opinion is past its prime. There was nothing on the front end. Almost like a blank and then you had some residual tannins and a touch of leather, some funk as well. The finish was unacceptable and the acidity was gone. This was a wine that used to be good just 5 hrs too late.

  • early for this one but after being open in the bottle for a couple hours really started to sing...funky, smokey secondary flavors, good not amazing length but pretty solid mouthfeel that seemed to gain size as the evening went along. Fruit is still present but seven years has seen seen it step back and the other characteristics step forward. should only get better

  • Light purple. Aromatics jump from the glass. Light bodied for a Tourtine. Very high acid and tannin. Minerals. Not ready to drink yet. I find this wine extremely interesting. When the 05's were released I was not very impressed other than really liking how the regular bottling went so well with fish. But now as the single vineyards are aging I am noticing wonderful changes. I drank this along with the 06 Tourtine and this is what I am thinking about today. A long nap in the cellar is what these 05's need. They will become truly excellent with time. I think in 10 or 15 years this will be surprising the few people with it in the cellar. Excellent (for me).

  • Mourvedre nose: deep, dark, bit of funk, dusty, smoky; palate is still very young and needs a lot of time for the structure to integrate. Give it at least 3-5 more years. 90-91++
