Château de Pibarnon (Comte de Saint Victor) Bandol Mourvedre Blend 2010

$45.95

Moving to the classic cuvee and even more impressive (it was one of the top wines I was able to taste for this report), the 2010 Bandol, which is over 90% Mourvedre...offers both gorgeous aromatic complexity and superb richness and depth on the palate. Giving up notions of pepper, Provencal herbs, underbrush and leather, with a solid core of dark fruit, this medium to full-bodied, pure, layered and beautifully balanced effort...will easily keep for a decade or more past that. eRobertParker.com

Seems to be in a good stage of development- nicely softened tannins. Juicy blackberry, game and violets. Drink this with bloody steak or by a winter fire.

Unfortunately this is my last bottle of 6. The 4(ish) opened after 2015 were pretty great.

Hitting its stride. Quite complex.

This is rounding into form, showing dark berry fruit, dried herbs and black olives.

Pibarnon never disappoints. A real treat in fact for the most demanding palate as it always offers a remarkable 'flavor trip'.

Probably drank this a few years too early. Great meatiness to the fruit. Deep earthy aromas. Just a little jumbled with youthful enthusiasm, tannins too big to let the flavors last.
