A Best Buy
TASTING NOTE: On March 3, 1929, the Cadiérenne cooperative was created by 37 winegrowers; today, La Cadiérenne is the largest producer of AP Bandol wines. A blend of Mourvèdre, Grenache and Cinsault, this wine offers ripe peach, pear, yellow apple and wild herbs with suggestions of exotic tropical fruit. It's bright, juicy, luxuriously smooth and round with a zesty edge to the finish. A beautiful wine. Pair with grilled seafood and summer salads. (Vintages panel, May 2017) Price $ 21.95
