CHATEAU PRADEAUX 2007 BANDOL ROUGE "X" 10 ANS D’ÉLEVAGE

1 Current Inventory

“X” is a very rare bottling from a cask (45-hectoliter foudre) of Bandol from the epic 2007 vintage that spent over nine years in barrel, developing a depth and intensity of character rare even for Pradeaux.

Anyone who appreciates the feral, visceral nature of Pradeaux will revel in the “X” a wine that, despite spending nearly ten years in foudre, still feels youthful and vigorous, just beginning its doubtlessly near-immortal life. The wild nose is both eager and brooding, a maelstrom of violets, unlit cigar, dried figs, and plums, all framed by an intense iron element. Super-concentrated on the palate, its chewy tannins are just beginning to show mercy, and one can sense a secondary savory streak beginning to shine through the thick wall of fruit and spice. This is a one-of-a-kind old Pradeaux to savor.
