  1. Gros Noré Bandol Rouge 2016
    WA93
    $39.98
    Availability:In Stock
    93 Points! One of my favorite 2016s, Gros Noré's 2016 Bandol is a complex, savory offering with at least 15 years of life ahead of it. Dark, plummy fruit picks up notes of mocha, roasted meat and mushrooms on the medium to full-bodied palate. Rich and velvety from start to long, long finish, this is nice, nice stuff, a blend of 80% Mourvèdre with 15% Grenache and 5% Cinsault aged in foudres. - Joe Czerwinski, robertparker.com Learn More
  2. Terrebrune Bandol Rosé 2018
    VM92
    $29.98
    Availability:In Stock
    In the 2018 lineup, this could well be the MVP (Most Valuable Pink). These folks have been doing great work for a while but the 2018 just seems to have a little bit more 'pop' and vigorous yet engaging fruit. As is the norm, Mourvedre (50%) is the star of this show with the other half of the wine is split roughly equally between Grenache and Cinsault. Half of the juice is saignee (bled from the red grapes) while the other half is made directly into rosé. Limestone and organic farming are key elements in this story, with this pink as the happy ending. Equal impressions of both berries and yellow stone fruits like peach and apricot, that cool, funky little twist is the Mourvedre speaking its piece, and there's a nice touch of minerality to the finish.

  3. La Bastide Blanche Bandol Rouge 2016
    JD95
    $24.98
    Availability:In Stock
    95 Points! As with the Southern Rhône Valley, Bandol appears to have had a banner year in 2016, and the 2016 Bandol from Domaine La Bastide Blanche is straight-up brilliant. Beautiful dark fruits, plums, spice, cedars, and garrigue notes all emerge from this full-bodied effort, which has terrific purity of fruit, a layered, opulent texture, sweet yet present tannins, and a great finish. This is brilliant Bandol! - Jeb Dunnuck, jebdunnuck.com Learn More
  4. Pradeaux Bandol Rosé 2018
    $26.98
    Availability:In Stock
    Last year’s(2017) was something of a best of show for us, and the 2018 is in the same mold with perhaps a little more perceived palate weight and slightly lower acidity. The blend here is 50% Cinsault and 50% Mourvedre, with the latter imparting the wine’s distinctive undercurrent of that unique musky minerality that seems to be proprietary to how Mourvedre performs in this particular terroir. In more rustic versions it can be overwhelming, but here it is another instrument in a virtual symphony of flavors. The effusive nose speaks of red berries, blood oranges and that earthy/mineral thing that is so indicative of the region. In the mouth it shows layers of flavor including, strawberry, orange, earth, mineral, and spice. There’s enough outgoing fleshiness to easily make friends who aren’t necessarily even fans of Bandol but the flavors are unmistakable. If you were as big a fan of the 2017 as we were, you will be quite happy with this one. Learn More
  5. Mas de Boislauzon Chateauneuf du Pape Tintot 2015
    JD98
    $74.98
    Availability:In Stock
    98 Points!  The 2015 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Tintot offers more black fruits, olive tapenade, charred meats and graphite, as well as a huge, concentrated, incredibly pure style on the palate. While the Quet is all about opulence and pleasure, this has a more focused, pure style, while not losing a beat on concentration and purity. I'd gladly put this up against Beaucastel's Hommage cuvée. Enjoy this incredible expression of Châteauneuf du Pape anytime over the coming 20-25 years. - Jeb Dunnuck

  6. Tercero Mourvedre Santa Barbara County 2013
    WA90
    $31.98
    Availability:In Stock
    90 Points!  Tercero's 2013 Mourvèdre reveals aromas of cassis, berries, aromatic bark and dried herbs, followed by a medium-bodied, supple palate with a juicy core of fruit framed by very fine-grained, polished tannins. Open-knit and savory, this is drinking well. - William Kelley, Wine Advocate #236

    Special Price $49.98
    Availability:In Stock
    94 Points! A wine that readers need to hide in the cellar for 2-3 years is the 2013 Damas Noir, which is a smokin' wine made from 100% Mourvedre, fermented with, of course, 100% whole clusters. Brought up in neutral oak, this medium to full-bodied, concentrated 2013 has tons of spice, bloody meats, stem and mulled dark fruit-like aromas and flavors, as well as a structured, tannic finish. It's loaded with potential. - Jeb Dunnuck, Wine Advocate #226, August 2016
