Domaine du Gros' Nore Bandol France Provence Bandol 2005
Olallieberry and boysenberry dominated nose that jumps out of the glass. Rich and velvety with just a hint of the underlying rusticity of Bandol. Very solid framework and muscular with serious plum, blackberry bramble and spiced earth. Charming, but lets you feel its presence. Kinda of like knobbies on a truck with space between the treads for the acid and fruit.
