Tasting in Terrebrune’s cellar last fall, it became apparent that 2015 stands among the great vintages the domaine has produced as of yet, in the same family as 2001, 2005, and 2009. And while logic suggests we should hold off on drinking the 2015s—after all, Terrebrune’s Bandols tend to take their time to fully open up, and this edition’s raw power promises a long life ahead—it’s just so darn good right now! With its deep, opulent Mourvèdre fruit and hint of game on the nose, ample flesh and earthy nuances framed by bright acidity, and solid backbone of chewy tannins, this grandiose effort is hard to resist. Put some bottles in your cellar for later, a few more for way later, but definitely don’t miss out as it confidently struts its way through youth. Anthony Lynch
