Domaine Bastide Blanche Bandol 2009

Member Review by duncan 906:

I bought this bottle of wine from the website www.bidforwine.co.uk/auctions/show/32795 for £10.Bandol is an AOC created in 1941 for red,white and rose wines from the area around the mediteranean seaside town of that name between Toulon and Marseilles.La Bastide Blanche is one of the better known producers and has been owned by the Bronzo brothers since 1972..The AOC rules state that the reds must be at least 50% Mourverde and this one is 80% mourverde,15% grenache and 5% cinsault and is aged in oak barrels..I started my bottle the other evening with my pork chop supper.I liked it as there is plenty of fruit [think plums and blackcurrants] but it is quite tannic.I left the half-full open bottle on the table until the following evening but it had not softened up by much.Perhaps this would be better with a few more years of bottle age.I still enjoyed it though
