The potential of Mourvèdre in Bandol is amply shown in this generous, ripe, spicy wine, the fourth vintage from Damien Roux at this estate. It has dark tannins and dense black plum fruits along with a powerful, brooding mineral character that will allow this impressive wine to age. Drink from 2018.
