Agnès Henry is a charming, easygoing woman, but her red Bandols are quite the opposite: these powerful, intensely structured beasts mean serious business. In the tiny village of Le Brûlat, her vineyards lie at the northern extreme of the coastal Bandol appellation, where maritime influence is ever-so-slightly mitigated. Coupled with the heavy red clay soils that make up the area, this gives her wines a correspondingly bigger, brawnier character than in your average big, brawny Bandol. This is especially true for the cuvée Saint Ferréol, which showcases Mourvèdre in its most rustic, gnarly form. Earthy notes of leather, game, and black fruit, along with a fresh, grippy finish, make this chewy red perfect for winter meals and worthy of a place in your cellar.
