“A red Bandol that fully lives up to the revered reputation of this tiny enclave of vines nestled on the coast just outside the city of Toulon. The limestone dominated soils ensure that the wines are endowed with structure and yet elegance. This striking red wine maybe heady and rich yet it retains sufficient freshness throughout. Deep, dark spiced wild herbs and autumnal fruit combine seamlessly with notes of faded rose, leather and damson plum. The sculpted tannins provide ample structure yet do not dominate the luxurious, powerful fruit. A wine to savour.” Neil Sommerfelt - Master of Wine
