95 Points by The Robert Parker, Jr.’s Wine Advocate
“The 2010 Bandol Rouge is a true blockbuster, and readers should do their best to latch onto a couple bottles. More serious, tight and structured than the 2011, it offers lots of minerality as well as dark fruits, peppery herbs and underbrush in a medium to full-bodied, pure, layered style that just begs to be cellared for another 4-5 years. It’s a great wine that will have two to three decades of overall longevity.” – Reviewed by Jeb Dunnuck, Robert Parker Jr.’s The Wine Advocate
“The Pibarnon Rouge 2010, just in bottle, shows intense flavours of black berries, black currant, cinnamon, liquorice, a nice spiciness, and garrigues (Mediterranean wild plants).
This wine reveals a mellow and crunchy opening, persisting on fine spices with a remarkable length. A wonderful vintage that found the magnificent balance between tension and volume, minerality and fruitiness, sapidity and freshness, strength and voluptuousness.”
