La Bastide Blanche Bandol 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

In the early '70's Michel and Louis Bronzo acquired the property of the Bastide Blanche, with an eye to producing from the Bandol appellation wines the equal of more famous appellations like Châteauneuf. The Bastide Blanche Rouge 2010 is primarily from Mourvèdre, with Grenache, Cinsault and Carignan. It displays spicy, black fruit aromas. Dense and powerful on the palate with layers of dark fruit and spice. A good accompaniment to roasted meats, cheeses and rockfish. Not yet reviewed; 2009 vintage rated 91 points by Robert Parker: ...This boisterous red exhibits a dense ruby/plum color in addition to a sumptuous perfume of cassis, raspberries, pepper, garrigue and lavender. Full-bodied, rich, pure and well-balanced, this is a heck-of-a-value from Bandol as red wines of this quality and aging potential (a decade or more) usually cost twice as much.
