Tasting commentary by Bruno Scavo
“The red Bandol 2017 «La Brulade» name of the place called planted of old Mourvèdre is a marvel with intense nose, deep, mesmerizing, which combines both ripe and fresh fruit, balsamic. Superb mouth feel, satiny, ample, silky density, elegant fruity blackcurrant, cherry, pepper, bay leaf, balsamic, touch quinquina.

The rather

high acidity, the abundant but fine tannins are both coated in this noble set and left for a very long guard”
