Chateau Pradeaux Bandol Rouge 2012

Winemaker's Notes:

90% Mourvèdre, 10% Grenache. Fresh and elegant, less tannic and closed than recent releases. The fruit, which is quite revealing at this early stage, leans a bit more toward cherry with more subdued notes of dried herbs and a hint of animal. The typical tannins are present but not as overbearing as the past couple vintages. The less structured character of the '12 prompted Etienne to bottle it at the same time as the 2011 (3 years of aging instead of the typical 4). It is a rare Pradeaux that drinks this well upon release.
