91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The first wine in the range is the 2016 Monastrell, which in reality contains some 8% combination of Garnacha and Syrah, cropped from a more continental, cooler and dry vintage. Like all the wines from the property, it fermented with indigenous yeasts, in this case with grapes from different plots, and matured in used oak barrels for eight to nine months. Juicy, primary, incredibly fresh and with a vertical palate, longer than wider, like a hypothetical blend of 2013 and 2015, cool but dry. This is always a great...

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2015 Las Gravas is a classic Mediterranean blend of Monastrell with 15% each Garnacha and Syrah, with 15% alcohol after fermenting with part of full clusters and indigenous grapes and aging in used oak barrels for 19 months. 2015 is the last vintage that Las Gravas has some Syrah, as it adds some sweet fruit he wants to avoid. However, it shows fresh within the balsamic profile, with plenty of rosemary and thyme notes combined with floral undertones and the character of the esparto grass and tree bark that ar...

92 points Vinous: "The 2017 Mourvèdre Enz Vineyard is compelling. Pliant and supple, it demonstrates lovely varietal character, and the 100% whole clusters add striking aromatic lift and freshness without marking the wine too strongly. Touches of rose petal, mint and bright, red-toned fruit grace the silky yet deep finish. A rare Mourvèdre that offers quite a bit of nuance and overall dimension. This is the first wine I have tasted from Caitlin Quinn (who is also the assistant winemaker at Arnot-Roberts), and it is a beauty. (AG)" (05/2019) K&L Notes: ...

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Mostly Mourvèdre (80%), with 20% Syrah, the 2017 Minervois le Vin de Plume offers intriguing aromas of dried spices, garrigue, even something floral that approaches lilacs in character. In the mouth, the wine delivers mixed berries, herbs and spices, a medium to full-bodied palate, ample concentration and a long, dusty finish. It's one of the more interesting wines I tasted from Minervois this year. (JC)" (05/2019) K&L Notes: Domaine du Somail lies in the eastern part of Minervois nestled in the slopes of the M...

2018 Château de la Noblesse Bandol Rosé
Top Pick!
Agnes Cade and her father, Henri Gaussen, cultivate the 14 sunny hectares of Château de la Noblesse, an estate that has been in their family for generations. Their zesty rosé is a blend of Mourvèdre, Grenache and Cinsault, and makes a great companion to spicy, saffron-infused dishes. Try it with a Spanish paella for the perfect summer meal.
Price: $19.99

The 2018 Château de la Noblesse Bandol Rosé has yet to be reviewed, but Josh Raynolds gave the 2017 vintage 90 points along with this review: "Light, vivid orange. Pungent, mineral-accented blood orange and red berry scents, with a subtle floral note in the background. Juicy and focused on the palate, offering raspberry and lavender flavors that are braced by a refreshingly bitter citrus pith note. Shows very good clarity and persistence on the finish, which leaves a dusty mineral note behind."

92 points Vinous: "Opaque ruby. Aromas of blackberry, blueberry, lavender and vanilla are complemented by a smoky mineral overtone. Weighty yet energetic on the palate, offering appealingly sweet dark berry flavors along with suave floral pastille and spicecake nuances. Smooth and seamless in style, finishing with repeating spiciness, supple tannins and lingering florality. (raised in new and used French oak barrels for one year) (JR)" (04/2019) 91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2016 Juan Gil (silver label) is pure Monastrell from old, non-...

93 points Jeb Dunnuck: "I’ve always loved the Two Acres cuvée from Officer, and his 2017 Two Acres doesn’t disappoint, although I think it’s a small step back from the 2016. Mostly Mourvèdre from deep loam and clay soils, it offers tons of smoked dark fruits, licorice, olive, and plenty of meatiness to go with a ripe, textured, sexy style on the palate. It has plenty of tannins and it certainly offers pleasure today, but 2-3 years of bottle age are going to be your friend."

From Kermit Lynch Wine Merchant: "When Lucie "Lulu" Tempier married Lucien Peyraud in 1936, her father gave them Domaine Tempier, an active farm that had been in the family since 1834, near Le Plan du Castellet, just outside the Mediterranean seaport village of Bandol. Tasting a pre-phylloxera bottle of Domaine Tempier Bandol (a wedding gift from his father-in-law) inspired Lucien to research the terroir of Bandol extensively. Up until that point, old vineyards planted with Mourvèdre had been systematically replanted to higher-yielding varietals. Howeve...

Winemaker's Notes: "The Alder Springs Vineyard is located on a 6,000-acre ranch outside of Laytonville. Stuart Bewley started planting in 1990, farms organically and is working towards transitioning to biodynamics. In addition, his farm is H-2A certified for all temporary farm workers. The grapes were harvested at 23 brix. 1/4 of the grapes were left whole cluster and the rest destemmed on top. The wine was fermented until dry and then pressed to neutral French oak and aged for 7 months. We produced 5 barrels. Tasting Notes: Dusty Blackberry. Crushed sto...

According to Wine Spectator: "A bit roasted in style, with a beefy edge to its braised fig, hoisin sauce and charcoal notes. Fleshy, with spice and dark fruit smoldering on the finish. For fans of the gutsy style. Drink now." (Web only, 2009)

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Mocha, cola, earth and caramel notes appear on the nose of the 2016 Bandol, a blend of 90% Mourvèdre and 10% Grenache. This is all dark fruit and savory nuance, full-bodied, richly concentrated, creamy and lush, yet it's chewy and tannic on the long, spicy finish. It can be consumed now with rare beef or lamb to help with the tannins, or be aged for up to 15 years. (JC)" (05/2019)

Jeb Dunnuck writes: "Easily the most widely recognized estate in Bandol, Domaine Tempier has been run by the Peyraud family since 1936. Today, with the passing of Lucien Peyraud in 1996 and the retirement of sons Francois and Jean-Marie, the estate is run by the tall, energetic and talented Daniel Ravier—who speaks with a refreshing honesty and humility. Looking at the reds, the estate fashions four cuvees, a classic Bandol from a mix of terroirs, and three single vineyards—La Migoua, La Tourtine and Cabassaou. The La Tourtine parcel lies at a slightly l...

From Matt Kettmann: "Ian Brand, The SF Chronicle’s 2018 Winemaker of the Year, is quite possibly the most interesting vintner in Monterey County today. The Connecticut-raised, former Bonny Doon cellar rat and one-time assistant at Big Basin is sourcing from so many distinct, often old-vine sites, and spearheading so many different consulting projects. Though quite varied in styles and grapes, the wines are all very energetic, distinctive and extremely fairly priced."

90-93 points Vinous: "The 2016 Mourvèdre Bedrock Vineyard is powerful and brooding. Smoke, scorched earth, leather, licorice, plum and menthol fill out the layers in this intense, virile wine. The 2016 is ample and potent. This is a terrific expression of Bedrock with tons of site character. I would give the 2016 at least a year or two to allow the tannins to soften a bit. A touch of Syrah (4%) rounds out the blend. (AG)" (04/2018)



91 points Vinous: "The 2015 Mataro (Contra Costa) is surprisingly gracious in the glass. Pure sand soils yield a wine built on aromatic lift, with expressive dried rose petal, lavender and red cherry fruit notes that are nicely pushed forward. (AG)" (08/2017) K&L Notes: Antonio Galloni writes: "Some people just have 'it.' Like a world-class athlete or musician, Tegan Passalacqua is one of those people who is endowed with a combination of superb natural skills, passion and an indominable work ethic. When those three qualities come together, well that's...

From the importer: "There is the appellation of Bandol with its plethora of producers, some good, some mediocre; and then there is Château Pradeaux, the unique, inimitable, standard-bearer for this ancient wine-growing district. The Château Pradeaux is situated on the outskirts of the town of Saint Cyr-sur-Mer that lies directly on the Mediterranean Ocean between Toulon and Marseilles. The estate has been in the hands of the Portalis family since before the French Revolution. In fact, Jean-Marie-Etienne Portalis, who inherited the estate in 1752, helped ...

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2016 Andremily California Mourvèdre ((97-99JD), 99RP, 93VN). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2016 Mourvèdre is composed of 89% Mourvedre, 9% Syrah and 2% Viognier coming from the Alta Mesa Vineyard in Santa Barbara County and Larner Vineyard in Ballard Canyon. Seventy percent whole cluster was employed, and the wine was aged for 21 months in French barriques, 50% new. Deep purple-black colored, it slips out of the glass with gorgeous fragrant earth, truffles and garrigue scents over a blackberry preserves and baked plums core plus nuances of chargrill and underbrush. Full-bodied, rich and seductively generous in the mouth, it has beautifully plush, velvety tannins matched by fantastic freshness, finishing long and savory. Only 210 cases and 'a few' magnums were produced. (LPB) " (06/2019)
