Winemaker's Notes:

Château Pradeaux Bandol is composed of no less than 95% Mourvèdre (old vines). The nose is a mix of honey and white flowers with a hint of animal fur; the color is ruby red; the fruit stains the palate and is lengthened by a near-perfect sense of roundness; the final attack is of ripe tannins that are dusty and sweet. Extraordinarily dense, with black notes to the color, the "Longue Garde" is marked by a strong scent of Provençal herbs combined with smoked red meat. This is a complete wine with incredible length; the flavors remind one of macerated plums and black currants. The super-ripe tannins are powerful and in perfect balance with the high fruit extract. This is the wine for the ages.
My Notes:

About Chateau Pradeaux:

The wine of Château Pradeaux tells a story, it's the carrier of the memory. Every generation gives the best of itself and elaborates respectfully and with love the invaluable nectar. Each of them brings its personal touch, its modernity, without denying the inheritance received from the ancient.
