Château de Pibarnon (Comte de Saint Victor)

Bandol Rosé Blend 2020

My favourite rosé, never ceases to please. Strawberry and a mild citrus, an almost creamy floral mid-palate and some peppery herbs on the finish. — 21 days ago

9.1

Traditional Bordeaux style, old school presentation: red currants, cigar box, herbs, red fruit, some cassis, Left Bank nose & palate. Full bodied, elegant, lovely integrated tannins. Supple delicious and a solid offering from a venerable producer from Lebanon — 14 days ago

@ESF, it’s been many years since I’ve had any of these Hochar wines, they used to be widely available and really inexpensive in NYC back in the 1980s. . . .

Domaine Tempier

Bandol Mourvedre Blend 2014

2014 drunk in mid-2024. Tannins softening nicely. Plenty of life left in this. Alcohol hit hard, but didn’t taste unbalanced. — 10 days ago

Château Musar

Bekaa Valley Red Blend 2016

Pretty much always a safe bet with consistent notes. Lively fruit and acidity. Paired well with slow roasted lamb shoulder — 13 days ago

Best Rose in the world! Haven’t had or bought this vintage yet.

Dark Salmon color. Rich on the palate with strawberries and peach. Massive depth and finish for a Rose.

I love the power, the spice, the rich mouthfeel. But damn, 15.5%. It’s a hot mess. One that I rather like but a bit too much. 2021. Could be a bit more restrained and it’d score higher. Will I keep buying this? Yep. — 23 days ago

My red line is 15%. Arbitrary, perhaps. But there it is.
