Okay, I love Bandol so my score may be high for others.
Popped and poured, dark garnet with bricking, clear. On the nose there was sous bois, mushroom, fresh earth, some funk, dark cherry, slightest hint of charcoal and pine. The palate was medium to full bodied, great mid-palate presence, very lush texture. Still a core of sweet ripe red fruits, tangy acidity, excellent concentration. The finish was long with fine grained tannins, at first mostly resolved and then becoming pronounced toward the end of the bottle. Great stuff! If I had another bottle I'd leave it a few more years, but it was awesome tonight.
