Domaine le Galantin Bandol Rouge 2007
This organically-grown wine is a powerhouse of dark berry fruit flavors with a lingering, complex finish. Produced from 95% Mourvedre, 5% Old-Vines Grenache, the wine is aged 18 - 24 months in oak cuves before release, which makes this tasty giant more approachable in its youth. Celine is now employing 25% whole cluster fermentation and pressing after 20 days. She has also removed Cinsault from the red blend. A wine to cellar or drink tonight with red meat and grilled dishes, these wines are an ideal accompaniment to game.
External Reviews for Domaine le Galantin Bandol Rouge
The young Céline Pascale has taken over the vines from her father, and the wines have never been better. This is full of dark fruit that's incredibly precise and rich on the palate. It really tastes like a mixed bowl of freshly crushed, dark berries. The old-vine fruit makes this wine positively buzz with intensity.
