2013 Bandol Rouge

Domaine de la Tour du Bon

2013 Bandol <i>Rouge</i> Domaine de la Tour du Bon - Kermit Lynch Wine Merchant

   $36.00

In the sunny Bandol appellation, Domaine de la Tour du Bon is a Provençal paradise of vines, olive trees, and pine forest. The soils consist of clay atop a hard layer of limestone; in fact, when certain parcels were first planted in 1935, the process of working the earth brought up countless massive stones that had to be broken up, cleared out, and used for the construction of terrace walls. Today, Mourvèdre and a host of other Mediterranean grape varieties cover the land, basking in the sunbaked, windswept landscape. The philosophy at the domaine is to work hard in the vines so that the vintage’s full potential is contained in nothing but the grapes, which are taken to the cellar to extract all the character the soil and growing season bestow. A concentrated, powerful red with hints of earth, game, and spice, this Bandol can be enjoyed now or kept for many years. –Anthony Lynch
