S France produces some terrific reds and lovers of the Mourvedre should try to search out this appellation. Otto and I are getting together this weekend to taste some Chateau Bunan on Open Mike so join us.
Mourvèdre oftens smells of s**t so of course as the resident coprophiliac I love the wines. It's just such a dashed shame that we so few of them. If we had more, you'd for sure hear more of this delightful region, lol!
Thanks for the note Dave! The plumminess that you noted had often in blind tastings made me (especially in the cases of Pibarnon and Tempier) go to Pomerol! I'm glad to hear that I'm not the only one to get a slightly Bx feeling about some of these wines.
I don't drink wine because of religious reasons ... only for other reasons.
