Product Description

As usual, this is a blend of 90 per cent Mourvèdre and 10 per cent Grenache, the latter particularly low yielding and concentrated in 2011. It is aged in large, old oak foudres for 18 months before blending and bottling without fining or filtration. This cuvée is a fabulous success in 2011, a nigh-on perfect expression of a fine, balanced vintage. Although this is tremendously elegant and seamless by Bandol's standards, there is still certainly enough stuffing and density to put a hair or two on your chest. It's aromatically refined with teasing scents of bay leaf, crushed black cherry, herby pan juices and a smoky, flinty note. Those notes are revealed with even more generosity on the tender and ripe palate. This is rounder and more pliant in the mouth than recent vintages and the perfumed fruit on the palate meshes into the plush tannins with consummate ease. A layered, intricate Bandol that stylishly brings together the seemingly incomparable elements of southern clout and northern class.
