Wine SpectatorThis offers a dense core of plum, cassis and cherry fruit, with rosemary and bay accents, all of which unfurl wonderfully through the rich yet fresh finish. Well-embedded acidity will help this cellar nicely. Best from 2018 through 2030. 1,214 cases imported.

Wine AdvocateThe straight 2013 Bandol Cuvee Classique from Tempier is a winner. Made from 74% Mourvèdre, 14% Grenache, 9% Cinsault, 3% Carignan and a splash of Syrah, this beauty is loaded with wild, gamey notes of blackberries, raspberries, wild herbs, olive and underbrush. Medium-bodied, silky and polished, with terrific purity of fruit, it's ideal for drinking over the coming 7-8 years, and I'm sure will keep for longer.
