Wine Advocate 94 points - Moving to the classic cuvee and even more impressive (it was one of the top wines I was able to taste for this report), the 2010 Bandol, which is over 90% Mourvedre, sees partial destemming and aging in oak casks, offers both gorgeous aromatic complexity and superb richness and depth on the palate. Giving up notions of pepper, Provencal herbs, underbrush and leather, with a solid core of dark fruit, this medium to full-bodied, pure, layered and beautifully balanced effort needs another 2-3 years of bottle age, and will easily keep for a decade or more past that. (Feb 2014)

Producer
This now famous Bandol property was purchased by Henri de St. Victor and his family in 1975. Planted on steep terraced slopes on the northern edge of the appellation, the estate is known for its wines that have both concentration and elegance. Both Henri de Saint Victor and his son are passionate wine makers. Pibarnon frequently comes out on top in comparative tastings of Bandol. The buildings, which now boast a special function room for tastings and dinners, overlook an amphitheatre of vines and has a spectacular panorama of the sea.
