Chateau de Pibarnon Bandol 2013

SKU 8373


2013 is a structured, built, long guard vintage. Its volume and mass indicate high amplitude and fade in the final to leave the palace smoothness, sweetness and fruity tannins. The tasting shows the success of the selection area: maturity at all costs, for extraction of tannins and minerality.

Wine SpectatorThis has a singed juniper hint out front, followed by bay, olive and leather hints that pervade the core of lightly steeped cherry and raspberry fruit. Everything knits nicely through the medium-weight finish. Approachable, but will develop more nuance with a bit of cellaring. Drink now through 2023. 9,500 cases made.
