Tasted as a hypothetical blend taken from several foudres, the 2020 Bandol should be about 70% Mourvèdre and 25% Grenache, with the balance a mix of Carignan and Cinsault. At this stage, it comes across as a bit stern and ungenerous, despite ample ripe notes of black cherries and dark chocolate. It's full-bodied, finishing with a hefty dose of dusty tannins.
Altogether the most serious of the three vintages tasted on this occasion, the 2019 Bandol is a particularly rich, dense effort. Black cherries, plum, dark chocolate and anise appear on the nose and full-bodied palate, framed by ripe tannins and culminating in a lengthy finish that's both salty and mouthwatering. A super effort. Tasted twice (once blind), with consistent notes.
