Chateau De Pibarnon Bandol Rouge 2009 (1x 75cl)

2009 was a great vintage in the south of France. The rainfall during the winter and spring was slightly higher than in previous years.  This has been particularly beneficial to the vines. A mild spring preceded a beautiful hot and dry summer. Temperatures began to decline gradually from mid-August. Consequently, slower ripening helped to preserve maximum freshness and purity in the wine.

 

The grapes for this wine are hand picked by a small team of pickers. This allows us to stretch out picking dates, to maximize the opportunity of harvesting each variety at its best moment of maturity. Strict selection and picking out of grapes made in the vineyard, if necessary.

 

The Pibarnon Rouge 2009 shows intense flavours of black berries, roasted coffee beans and garrigues (Mediterranean wild plants). . The tannins are very smooth with a nice spiciness. This vintage is remarkable for its freshness, even in this hot year. It is a great combination between the strength of mature fruit and the elegance of Pibarnon's terroir. This wine was aged for 18 months in oak casks before being bottled.

Chateau De Pibarnon Bandol Rouge 2011 (1x 1.5L Magnum)

In 2011, a large part of the harvest was vinified with complete grapes as the maturity and concentration of flavours within the grapes was so good. The wine was aged in big oak vat from Burgundy and Austria. The origin and age of each barrel is  specifically chosen to enhance the characteristics of our different vines.

 

2011 was a great vintage in the south of France. The rainfall during the winter and spring was slightly higher than in the previous two years and has been particularly beneficial to the balance of the plant. A mild spring preceded a windy and dry summer, preserving a the crop perfectly.  The grapes were hand picked using a small team of pickers. This allows us to stretch out picking dates and to maximize the opportunity of harvesting each variety at its best moment of maturity.  There was strict selection in the vineyard and where it was felt to be necessary, individual buches of grapes were removed.

 

This wine is very expressive and "explosive", with a lot of red and black fruits, a nice spice, but without hardness. In bottles since the summer of 2013, it gives a lot of seduction, with much density as well as the softness whilst retaining this famous Mourvedre's character!

Chateau De Pibarnon Bandol Rouge 2012 (1x 75cl)

Awarded 96 points and Outstanding status by Decanter (www.decanter.com) in their September 2016 edition review of Provence (see blue link below). 

Pibarnon 2012 - Sept 2016 Decanter review

The vineyards overlook the valley, facing the sea, covering terraces upon terraces up to 300 metres altitude, on slopes forming a vast amphitheatre, sheltered from the mistral. The high altitude of the vineyards means cool nights and slow ripening of the grapes. The Château de Pibarnon vineyard is planted on very old and highly calcareous, Triassic ground. This limestone enhances the bouquet in the wine. It also allows the extraction of very fine and elegant tannins. Moreover it is this which causes the freshness and minerality, giving an exemplary type and flavour. Château de Pibarnon focuses on 12 main plots, all located at the summit of the estate including Bel Air, Jourdan, Pointes-Blanches and le Cirque.

The icy winter had little effect on the vines. The winter ended with a dry month in March. The months of April and May provided the necessary rainfall that the grapes need in order to thrive.  In July and August, the nights were very cool (sometimes 15°C early in the morning).  The fermentation was followed by a very long maceration (about 3 weeks) before running off. The wine was then aged in oak for 20 months.

2012 is a vintage revealing firmness as well as great elegance. It has less powerful tannins than in 2011 - these are distinguished by their velvety texture and finesse. This wine seems to offer juicy fruits from the first sip, it then reveals unexpected depths and lengths with subtle spicy and minty notes.

Chateau Du Cedre Cahors 2013 (6x75cl)

Whilst young, Chateau Du Cedre Cahors is already tasting delicious and no doubt has the legs to last. Beautifully pure, soft fruit with pepper and oak-smoke; nice and restrained in spite of the deep concentration. The palate has fantastic balance and the tannins are soft and the body of the wine of the wine is just as restrained as the nose. If Ron Burgundy were a wine, it would be this one.

£100.15

Chateau Routas Wild Boar Red Vins de Pays Du Var 2014 (1x 75cl)

90% Cabernet Sauvignon; 10% Carignan.  This is an unusually approachable expression of this classic varietal, deep purple in colour, exuding fruity aromas on the nose, and with the velvety character of a great Cabernet.

£9.10

Chateau Tour Des Gendres Anthologia Rouge 2008 (6x75cl)

They are certified organic and use careful vinification techniques to ensure the truest expression of the terroir and vintage. Chateau Tour Des Gendres Anthologia Rouge 2008 is predominantly Merlot with intense almost opaque appearance with a complex nose of black berry fruit, licorice and spice. Full bodied with firm yet sweet tannins and a rich, opulent finish. It is easy to understand why Luc’s wines are considered some of the best and most exciting of the region.
