A scented softy

I do love Bandol. 1997 wasn’t a great vintage but I enjoyed this [link2post id=”1329″]last time I had it[/link2post] and I am enjoying this now.

Bandol Cuvee Speciale la Tourtine 1997, Domaine Tempier

A lovely nose of soft fruit, grilled meat and a bit of arsehole character. This is very perfumed and has a very pleasing aroma. Nice earthy complexity there, too. This smells properly mature and up for drinking, good. The palate is quite soft, too, with good, mature fruit, a nice yielding tannic structure and satisfying earthiness. This is really quite complex, and has very good length. Perfectly mature and enjoyable. A top bottle of Bandol that restores my faith in the wonders of old Domaine Tempier.
