382 V O L . 7 5 P A R T 3 M A Y 2 0 1 7 THE ADVOCATE DOMAINE DE LA BASTIDE BLANCHE BANDOL 2012 $36 at Kitsilano and Dundarave Wine Cellars This wine is made principally from the Mourvèdre grape and blended with some Grenache and Cinsault. It is a delicious Bandol. This producer is known for its commitment to keeping low yields and it shows in the concentration of fruit in the wine and the intensity of its flavours. The flavour profile is one of blackberry jam with undertones of spice and licorice. The finish is long and satisfying. This beautiful Bandol proved to be a perfect accompaniment to grilled steak with patates frites. t t t t t © Duncan Bain
