Wine Advocate-Parker :
Despite being raised in foudres, I thought I detected some oak on the nose of the 2016 Bandol. Mocha and cola notes give this full-bodied blend of 78% Mourvèdre, 16% Grenache, 4% Cinsault and 2% Syrah a decidedly dark flavor profile, framed by ripe tannins. With its creamy, lush texture, it seems almost too easy to drink for a wine that's meant to age, but this offers plenty of depth and concentration, with blackberry fruit and soft dustiness on the long finish.
