Chateau De Pibarnon, Bandol, 2013

31.99

The 'Petrus of Bandol' sits on the Telegraphe Hill, once part of the of the Toulon – Paris optical telegraph system. The hill is a geological oddity in the region, as it is made up of Triassic limestone as opposed to the granite common to Bandol. The soil, the altitude of 300 metres and a semi circular amphitheatre of terraces, protecting the vines from the fierce Mistral, affords wine of great elegance and finesse with the potential for long ageing. Only one red wine is made, from 100% Mourvedre, with a glorious aroma of violets and blackberries with liquorice, tobacco and pine needles. Its big, butch and brawny with deep, dark, fruit and wild nuances of the earth and soil.
