Bandol is not for the faint of heart. This tiny region in Provence produces some of the biggest wines on earth. Estate dates back to the 1920s and is currently run by the 4th generation. Mourvèdre is both king and queen here, ruling over the wines with a firm yet beautiful hand.
As for this red, expect a similar experience to a Cabernet Sauvignon; full-bodied, high alcohol, intense tannins, deep dark fruit, and enough acidity to tie it all together. This wine is no joke!
