Bandol Mourvedre

2017. Gamey black fruit on the nose. Obv.

Balances tannins, long finish. And balanced but pronounced acidity.

How’s it evolving? I’ve got a mag of this and wondering if I should even open it this decade 😅

Wait. Needed some time. I should have decanted longer. But it was quite enjoyable. Had with lazy cassoulet recipe.

Cuvée Vieilles Vignes Bandol Mourvedre Blend 1989

Casey Curbow

Still tough as nails. Searing mineral with fun herbaceous undertones and soy/hoison notes. — 3 years ago

La Bastide Blanche

Bandol Mourvedre Blend 2016

J. Kim

Enough complexity, enough acidities, enough body, great harmony, 99,99% pure and absolutely no hint of superficiality. Cleaner than Pradeaux or Gaussen and earthier than Pibarnon and Tempier. Tastes exactly right. — 5 years ago

Vesprée Bandol Rosé Blend 2021

Super dry little sucker, like grape skin and cranberry. Interesting though not immediately appealing. — 3 months ago

Les Lys Bandol Red Rhone Blend 2018

Dry and robust. Rich and leathery with notes of chocolate, Luxardo cherries, and a little bit of raisin. — 4 months ago

Moulin des Costes Bandol Mourvedre Blend 2011

Popped and poured at La Buvette. Dark garnet with an opaque core. No visual signs of age. Consumed over three hours. Initially reticent but after about 30min, it started to show off. On the nose, dark cherries and cocoa. On the palate, dark chocolate cherry cordial, espresso and baking spices. Tannins built up over time and there’s fantastic acidity. Lovely stuff and seems built for the long haul. A super Bandol on the heels of Tempier and Pradeaux. — 3 years ago

It’s situated on this perilous drive up a hill near Pibarnon. Unique terroir to be sure

Cuvée Longue Garde Bandol Mourvedre Blend 2004

This was the Longue Garde cuvee. Better the second day, or just Garde it for Longue-er. Similar to the regular Bandol but with more heft and a pronounced topnote of cedar. — 3 months ago
