Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate (Jeb Dunnuck) / Bandol 2011

2014-04-30 Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate (Jeb Dunnuck)

The 2011 Bandol is an outstanding effort that gives up ripe black fruits, ground pepper, earth and leather nuances to go with a structured, savory, medium-bodied feel on the palate. Give it another year and enjoy it through 2021.

This was a superb lineup from Gregory Hecht and Francois Bannier. The wines show distinctive personalities as well as solid underlying structures. They also represent excellent values.
