Guilhem Tournier Bandol Rouge Cuvee Luisa Jeanne
Domaine de la Roche Redonne ( Mas Redonne )
France - Provence - Bandol AOC

The wine takes its name from a goddess, Luisa Jeanne.  It has a deep red color with dark brick hues, a very intense and complex nose with strong sensations of dark fruit, compote, spice, earth and garrigue, with a minty touch. Palate intense, complex and silky, full and opulent with olfactive sensations and a slightly mineral saline aftertaste accompanied by rich but ripe tannins wrapped in a fruity robe. Approachable, long, harmonious, elegant.

"This ripe, smoothly textured and polished wine is now approaching maturity. It still has tannins under the black fruits and licorice flavors, while everything has come together. This is a fine wine ready to drink from 2023. - ROGER VOSS"
