I have a sweet spot for Bandol, and for Mourvèdre in particular, which makes up 75% of this one. Its vivid blood red color almost jumps from the glass. Cassis and tar and deep black cherry intermingled with…what is it? Black truffles? Espresso beans? And yes, it has tannins, but not aggressively so. Decant this beauty for all its glory. Oh, this is a blockbuster for sure, but one that would not only go very well with food, but indeed demands a juicy Gigot d’Agneau! 5 stars – I said I had a sweet spot for Bandols!
