A bouquet of fresh lavender, warmed in the sun; cranberries lightly poached in red wine. These stunning aromatics combine with what has to be the most lively, peppery nose we've ever experienced from Pibarnon's rouge; it is simply electric. Lavender again takes the lead on the palate, with waves of sweet southern French plums, pink peppercorns and soy-soaked seared beef. Rich and sweet, a perfect harmony of spice and fruit. Tannins are silky and fine, yet still provide a solid backbone we've come to worship in noble Bandol. A blend of 90% Mourvèdre, 10% Grenache; enjoy over the next 10-20 years.
