2011 Domaine de la Bastide Blanche Bandol
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2011 Bandol offers up a similar, traditionally styled personality with ample spice, underbrush, ground herbs and assorted Mourvedre meatiness that’s balanced by beautiful black cherry and darker fruits. Medium to full-bodied, with juicy acidity and a fresh, focused feel, it will benefit from short term cellaring and have upwards of two decades of overall longevity. (JD)
*Cellar Selection* A wine that is structured and dominated at this stage by its tannins. The potential is there, showing in the rich, supporting fruit and berry flavors that come through as the wine opens up. Drink this wine with its good potential from 2017.
