Tempier “Cabassaou” Bandol 2010

Posted on

Saturated purple.

Opened yesterday – nose of potato/earth/tree bark, black pepper, shoe polish, wood smoke and blackberry coulis. Deep.

Round and sensual, particularly for Bandol. Shows an orange liqueur aspect in the mid-palate, where things tighten up impressively thanks to acid/tannin synergy. Really suave for Bandol, but also packed and lively. This is FK.

$60. I think this is 100% Mourvedre from a tiny parcel
