Bandol, Provence

Domaine Tempier

Cuvée Spéciale Bandol Mourvedre Blend 2018

A little monster in an elegant suit, unleashed with plenty of complexity luring underneath. 
Dense and concentrated aromas, youthful and unleashed but without any hard or offensive edges. Primary dark fruit with black plums and cassis, followed by blueberries and a refreshing orange-like character. A savory complexity with earth, cold meat. Plenty of savoury spice that evolves into fresh herbs and lavender with aeration.
Palate is dry with a high acidity, high dry tannins is keeping the pace but is well balanced by a backbeat of a generous of dark fruit canvas, strong and dimensional mid palate with and a long finish where the tannins still regins supremes and close it all up. 9,4
75% Mourverde, Grenache, Cinasult and Syrah,. elevage for 18 months in large casks.

Bandol Rosé Mourvedre Cinsault 2020

As goth in residence I should alert you that aside from inevitable pheromones it is intellectual wine acumen that revs my motor. Ipso facto if brains turn you on, this Bandol will seduce you with its thoughtful rigor—it has its balance and complexity fine-tuned. Then pure sensual attributes (silky rhubarb/peach Melba joy/is that a bay leaf? And omg perhaps even a hint of allspice) are all guest speakers at the symposium. This wine has deep thoughts but is perky-goth enough to dance til at least 3am. Daylight may be too much though. — 25 days ago
