2011 Bandol Rouge

Domaine de Terrebrune

2011 Bandol <i>Rouge</i> Domaine de Terrebrune - Kermit Lynch Wine Merchant


Terrebrune’s Bandol brings up an interesting paradox: how can a red composed of 85% Mourvèdre—a notoriously ferocious, rustic cépage—exhibit so much elegance and polish? I recently asked myself this very question as I brutishly sipped the 2011, gnawing some meat off a lamb chop with barbaric impudence and pausing only to wipe my greasy hands on the pristine white tablecloth. Terroir and winemaking certainly have something to do with it, I thought, and then forgot about it as I savagely bit another chunk of meat off the bone and washed it down with this deep, classy Bandol, a combination of angelic grace with tooth-staining fruit and notes of briary wild herbs and gamey beast. –Anthony Lynch
