"Very fragrant and seductive bouquet with notes of earth and heather, plus some garrigue, rosemary and cassis. Powerful in the mouth with glossy oak, good structure, ripe tannins and complex spicy and black fruit flavours. Involving and very long. Drinkability in spades!" Decanter World Wine Award 2019 - 97 pts & Platinium Medal
"This wine is produced from organic grapes, wood aged for 18 months and powered by ripe tannins and a balanced structure that molds rich fruit and acidity into an intense structure. Drink from 2023. - Roger VOSS" - Wine Enthusiast Magazine (July 2019), 94 pts
"The flagship 2015 Bandol Brulade is a powerful, serious Bandol that knocks it out of the park with its monster nose of dark fruits, cured meats, sandalwood, olive tapenade, and leathery characteristics. Medium to full-bodied, concentrated, and pure, with plenty of sexy fruit, it’s a terrific, serious Bandol that needs another 2-3 years of bottle age and will keep for 15-20." - Jeb Dunnuck (March 27th 2019), 94 pts
"The inky-colored 2015 Bandol Rouge la Brulade is 95% Mourvèdre, aged two years in demi-muids. Rich, plummy and intense, it showcases the power and majesty of Mourvèdre but somehow tames the tannins to manageable proportions. It's full-bodied and dense, boasting hints of lavender, thyme and sage to go along with the dark fruit flavors. It should drink well soon and remain strong through at least 2030. - Joe Czerwinski" - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (Interim end of September, September 2018), 93 pts
"This single-vineyard wine comes from a parcel that sits at 1,300 feet facing the Mediterranean sea. Its dark color, fabulous ripe fruits and perfumed character give it both richness and longevity. With 95% Mourvèdre, it has all the structure, dark tannins and spice of this grape that is at its best in this appellation. Drink this wine from 2023. - Roger VOSS"
"This is the top wine from La Bégude, named after the highest point in the vineyard at 1200 feet. It has structure, density and considerable acidity that is still calming down. With 18 months in wood, the wine has developing an extra richness and concentration. Produced by the Tari family, formerly of Château Giscours in Margaux, it is a wine made for aging. Drink from 2020. - Roger VOSS"
