Too young or not, those DRCs delivered very well. The RsV was pretty tight to begin with, but opened up after a while. Didn't take any notes, just enjoyed the wines. The Gaja was pretty sensational, with some good tannins still.

Had the '09 Terrebrune, '09 Gros-Noré and '11 Tempier, all rouge. The Terrebrune is the "easiest" to grasp, the Tempier has more depth. The Gros-Noré rouge faired much better than their rosé, imo, unfortunately it's a bit too hot (15% too).

Any other recommendations for Bandol wine? http://www.maisondesvins-bandol.com/tarifs.php

The three you've got are my favs. Other good producers which I like are: Pradeaux, Ott, and Pibarnon. Ott is a bit over-rated IMO. I've tried, but not been thrilled with Tour du Bon and Bastide Blanche.

Thanks.

Had the '08 Cristo di Campobello Lu Patri tonight. Highly recommended. Maybe even better than the '07.
Doesn't need a long decant, if any at all.

I still have 4 more bottles, but in Texas summer lasts a bit longer.

Finished my last tonight.

One bottle of rose left. Probably getting killed this weekend.
post #16647 of 17875
To celebrate the summer being over, I might buy a couple of bottles of Bandol Rose.

i can't deal with the pricing of Bandol rose. Always seems to be $25+ in stores with the occasional outlier for $19.99

There are some 6-8 € Bandol rosés, though I guess they don't get exported (to the US). Haven't tried them.

Had the '08 Gros-Noré rouge today. Less interesting than the '09 but no overpowering alchohol. Good. Quite a lot of sediment.
