The vineyard of Bandol nestles in the middle of the hills (Sainte-Baume and Mont Caume in particular) to the sea. The Bandol appellation extends over the communes of Sanary-sur- Mer, Bandol, La Cadiere-d'Azur, Le Beausset, Évenos, Le Castellet, Saint-Cyr-sur-Mer and Ollioules, in the vicinity of Toulon. The Appellation d'Origine Contrôlée Bandol has given its nobility to the Mourvèdre, a Mediterranean varietal that flourishes on the skeletal soil of the vineyard. The wines produced in Bandol are classified among the great wines of Provence, and particularly the red wines, the reference of the Bandol appellation, which can be kept for 10 years in the cellar.
Red wine AOC Bandol
The red Bandol wine comes mainly from the Mourvèdre grape (between 50 and 95%). The winemakers assemble it with Cinsault or Grenache. The red wine of appellation Bandol AOC is distinguished by its complexity: a mineral background on which are aroused aromas of havana, leather, black fruits or even cinnamon. On the palate, one senses the influence of the Mourvèdre in the tannins, subtly raised by a note of licorice. The red wines of appellation Bandol, powerful and well-structured, express their personality after a few years in the cellar. The best vintages can keep several decades in breeding. We appreciate their deep, intense robe and are eaten on game.
AOC rosé appellation wine
The Appellation d'Origine Contrôlée Bandol produces rosé wines whose reputation is well established. The wine of Bandol rosé is displayed in roundness and generosity. Like the red wine of Bandol, the rosé comes from the Mourvèdre, Grenache and Cinsault varieties. It has a limpid salmon robe that illuminates the table or the aperitif. While fresh, the rosé wine of appellation Bandol AOC is gourmand and warm on a Mediterranean kitchen. On the nose, this rosé releases aromas of red fruits and on the palate, it expresses all the personality of its soil. The Bandol rosé wine is eaten young or after a few years of guard thanks to the typical structure of the Mourvèdre.
Bandol white wine AOC
Less well known than the red and rosé wines of Bandol, the vinification in white does not miss any trumps! The white of Bandol is the surprise of a wine as frank as delicate. Her straw yellow color wins in depth with its greenish reflections. On the nose, the white wine appellation Bandol AOC reveals a wide aromatic palette, from grapefruit to linden. The roundness of the white of Bandol opens on a characteristic final length. It can be enjoyed as an accompaniment to grilled fish, or as an aperitif to appreciate the accents of Provence.
