Ch. pibarnon Restanques bandol red 2020
The Château de Pibarnon Restanques Bandol Rouge 2020 is a red wine that embodies refinement and elegance, nurtured by the estate's picturesque vineyards overlooking the Mediterranean Sea in Provence's Bandol appellation. This wine is particularly celebrated for its use of Mourvèdre, a thick-skinned black grape that thrives in the sunny Bandol appellation, benefiting from about 3,000 hours of sunshine annually. The Restanques selection comes from younger vines organically raised on the same terroir as the estate’s Bandol Rouge, featuring a blend primarily composed of 70% Mourvèdre and 30% Grenache. The wine's aromas suggest black pepper and Provençal garrigue, a term referring to the wild, aromatic vegetation typical of the Mediterranean region. It boasts moderate tannins and offers full-bodied flavors of red and black fruits. The wine's lush texture and immediate approachability make it a distinct and enjoyable choice, suitable for pairing with foods like roasted pork or grilled lamb accompanied by spring vegetables.
