It is a rewarding enough occasion in the US to find a Bandol Rosé, but a Bandol RED is like hen’s teeth! Easily my favorite wine from Provence and couldn’t wait to get this find open. Huge dense staining and explosive on the nose and palette full of crazy deep fruit, game, musk, briar and earth. Stunningly structured but perfectly balanced. A perfect sign of polish, but none of age. A beautiful wine–I’m glad I have several.
