Château de Pibarnon
> Bandol 2006 Red
Made from a blend of Mourvèdre (90%) and Grenache (10%) this wine reflects Pibarnon's unique land. A deep, almost purple robe, the 2006 vintage is a dense wine.
From the very beginning, it has the right mix of an edgy texture, uprightness and style, so characteristic of the great years of Mourvèdre wines that are meant to be matured. Noticeable by ripe fruit and small berries, the bouquet evokes hints of rosemary or sage, which certifies the origin of its fragrant wildland.
The mouth is rich and powerful with a finish which is particularly velvety on the palate.
To be consumed ideally with game like pigeon or duck, but also lamb, roasted meats, sweetbreads, scrambled truffles or fried foie gras.
