This is the estate flagship wine, what Agnes calls “the blood of the earth.” 60% Mourvèdre, 25% Grenache, 13% Cinsault, 2% Carignan. 2016 in Bandol is a magnificent vintage as it is in the Southern Rhone but maybe better. This wine will repay many yars of cellaring and Mourvèdre one of the greats. I would urge you to strongly consider this..
I tasted this at the Renaissance des Appellations in Angers in February and was bowled over - a super deep blue/purple colour with a graceful, open nose that displays blackberry, spice, bay leaves and pepper; it is both carnal and virile. In the mouth it is sensual and beautiful at once. - Andrew Guard, importer.
