dark crimson, viscous, beautiful, balance, cherry skin, dirt, violet, moss, shallot uhm, strange wine...I've only tasted excellent rose and ripe, delicious, ready-to-drink red wine from this region. I need to try more wine from Bandol. This wine is ready to drink today. It's on the same level as many second-growth Bordeaux.

On the nose: Meaty and earthy; charred meat notes, briar patch, raspberry and black berry bushes. Woodsy cedar and cigar box aromas. The palate: Gorgeously rich up front, well balanced. Well integrated cedar and tobacco flavors from the oak. Black fruit; bramble and blackberry. A lengthy finish that fades into the distance with tannic subtlety and alcoholic warmth. After some decanting, notes of caramel, savory herbs, potpourri, cassis, and truffles (?) or sous-bois (?). Very complex. Will probably hold for a few more years, but is probably at it's prime. Excellent value for the price.

I found this wine to be too tannic for me. I was disappointed with the lack of finnish and body. A lot of people like this wine so it must be a matter of personal preference. I will hold on to my other two bottles of 2oo2 and see if it smooths out a bit.

55% Mourvedre, and 45% Cinsault. Deep, orange-tinged pink. Potent aromas of dried redcurrant and cherry, with complicating notes of pungent herbs, white flowers, anise and minerals. Smooth, fleshy and gently sweet, offering firm red berry and blood orange flavors and tangy notes of white pepper and quinine. Offers superb complexity and should be very adaptable at the table, especially with strong cheeses or grilled fish.

From stunning hillside vineyards overlooking the Mediterranean, comes a rich, flavorful Bandol rosé. With fragrant aromas of flowers and Provençale herbs, this dry wine is perfect for bouillabaisse or herb-flavored grilled meats.

Owned by the Portalis family since the 18th century, Pradeaux holds a reputation for seriously structured, often brutally tannic wines made almost exclusively from Mourvèdre. This is a sublime expression of Mourvedre; fruity, densely concentrated with mineral, earthy notes.

There is the appellation of Bandol with its plethora of producers, some good, some mediocre; and then there is Chateau Pradeaux, the unique, inimitable, standard bearer for this ancient wine-growing district.

Longue Garde is meant for long aging. This is a powerful wine, complex and challenging, with enormous sweet, grainy tannins. When it opens, it has aromas of flowers and herbs that can fill a room.

From an outstanding vintage and traditional winemaker comes this Bandol, made mostly with Mourvédre. Black fruit, spice and notes of cured meat will have you coming back for more.
