Description

This red wine from Bandol is made from the Mourvedre grape and has plenty of structure, full reds with lots of tannins and a particularly dark fruited, dark chocolate aroma, with lots of herbs and spice. This is no exception, with blackberry, rosemary and mixed spices on the nose, with a firm, dense palate and a long fine finish. Drink now or cellar for another 5 years. 13%ABV

Domaine de la Begude was bought in 1996 by seventh-generation winemaker Guillaume Tari, who was raised at Chateau Giscours in Bordeaux, so understood a few things about making great wine! Once a stopover for travellers seeking shelter and sustenance – ‘beguda’ means ‘drink’ or ‘the place to drink’ in Provencal. It’s predominantly planted with Mourvedre which is the key red grape of Bandol, in Provence, right next to the Mediterranean.
