  • TASTING NOTE: “Another awesome wine is the 2009 Bandol, which is much more in the style of the exuberant, sexy 2011 than the cooler, serious 2010. Notes of salted meats, exotics spices, licorice, currants and plums all emerge from this deep, full-bodied, concentrated and sexy beauty. It has the fruit and texture to impress today, yet will cruise for another 10-15 years.”
    Jeb Dunnuck, The Wine Advocate (tasted 2016)
  • ABOUT THE WINE: Organic. This is Pibarnon’s top wine, and one of the great ‘mountain Bandols’. It’s a blend of 90% Mourvèdre and 10% Grenache drawn from the estate’s high-altitude restanques. The altitude, the influence of the sea and the limestone/clay soils all bring a freshness and purity that is rare among Mediterranean reds. This cuvée is based only on the fruit of the oldest vines and finest terraces of Château de Pibarnon, including Bel-Air, La Grande Paguette, La Falaise, Les Pointes Blanches, Le Col and Les Dolmens. 
  • ABOUT THE PRODUCER: The vineyards of Château de Pibarnon create a natural amphitheatre, sitting atop La Colline du Télégraphe at a height of 300m, staring directly out at the sparkling Mediterranean bay of La Ciotat. This is one of the few terroirs that can ripen and sculpt the surly Mourvèdre into the kind of fine, supple and fragrant wine that Pibarnon is famous for. It’s not easy to pinpoint exactly what makes these wines so distinctive. There’s the lofty elevation of the Pibarnon vineyard, which allows for a longer, slow ripening period, and there is the unique, ancient fossil-rich limestone, clay and blue marl soils that bring a seamless web of tannins into play. The high level of Mourvèdre is another major difference, with most Bandol wines having much more Grenache in the blends. Whatever the reasons, these are ravishing, unique wines and should be counted among the very best in Southern France. Of course, the certified organic—and now biodynamic—viticulture, and the careful, minimal winemaking helps as well. The approach in the cellar includes wild yeast fermentation, neutral, large-format oak and amphora vessels for fermentation and aging, and minimal sulphur usage. These factors (terroir and culture) result in a distinctively elegant style of Bandol, one that has tamed the rusticity that Mourvèdre is certainly capable of producing.
