When I tried this chez Pibarnon the winemaker was highly amused that I said it was sexy. It is sexy, I tell you!
Bandol 2001, Chateau de Pibarnon
A rich, heady nose of ripe, complex fruit. This is packed with style, and is really voluptuous on the nose; deeply, deeply lovely. I am really charmed by this; it may be a bit on the big side but it does not lack finesse or class. The palate has a truly lovely tannic structure, which frames the beautiful fruit in a really pleasing way. This is really too young to be drinking, but by arse does it put a smile on my face. Tits Bandol, man, with not even the merest hint of arseholes. Yeah, power up!
