Jeb Dunnuck - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:

"Like the Restanque de Pibarnon, the 2011 Bandol Rouge shows the sunnier nature of the vintage with its sexy, layered personality. More elegant, seamless and polished, with slightly finer tannin, it offers up beautiful notes of black raspberries, currants, licorice and spice in a supple, medium to full-bodied, balanced, seamless style that will keep nicely for another decade at least.

"Run by Eric de Saint Victor, who is aided by assistant winemaker Marie Laroze, Chateau de Pibarnon fashions some of the top wines from this incredible appellation. Any reader wanting to taste the best expression of Bandol should get on this estate’s bandwagon, as the price has yet to catch up to the quality." June 2016

Wine Spectator:

"A polished, ripe, flattering style, particularly for Bandol, with flavors of plum, cassis and cherry preserves gliding along, carried by red licorice and singed cinnamon notes. Lingering whiffs of black tea and warm fruitcake emerge on the finish. Drink now through 2023. 7,500 cases made." October 2015
