2005 Château Pibarnon Bandol

SKU #1054440

95 points and a Highly Recommended from the Wine Spectator: "An intense and focused red, with concentrated mineral, plum and dark cherry that are flanked by tobacco box notes. Lithe yet powerful, with a long, elegant and finely chiseled finish of slate and white pepper. Drink now through 2015." (05/09) Undeniably, the sun-kissed region of Bandol produces some of Provence's greatest red wines. Located just east of Marseilles and Cassis, the appellations regulations stipulate that Bandol rouge must be made with a majority of the powerful Mourvedre grape and from vines a minimum of 8 years of age. In addition, all harvesting must be done by hand, with red wines undergoing a minimum of 18 months in oak before release. Rich and deep, with excellent ageing potential and tremendous character, a well seasoned Bandol is the quintessential accompaniment to one Provence's most famous delicacies, a Gigot d'Agneau (garlic studded leg of lamb).
