BANDOL

BANDOL

Created in 1941, the Bandol appellation is said to be the most favoured appellation in France, its vineyards being planted on south-facing restanques with a unique climate and sunshine. Bandol is also an amphitheatre oriented towards the sea, the maritime entrances have a huge influence on the wines, giving them an exceptional balance and salinity.

A SPECIFIC PREPARATION FOR THE PRODUCTION OF BANDOL WINE

The vineyard of Bandol covers an area of approximately 1600 hectares in 8 communes of Var department: Bandol, Le Beausset, Le Castellet, La Cadière d’Azur, Saint Cyr-sur-mer, Sainte-Anne d’Evenos, Sanary-sur-Mer and Ollioules. The Bandol Appellation has a fairly binding specification: mandatory manual harvest, 18 months of ageing in barrels or lightning that will allow Bandol Reds to be more ample and soft in mouth, yields not exceeding 40 hectolitres per hectare... In short, “Can't be Bandol who wants!”

3 SHADES OF BANDOL

The vineyard produces 3 colors of a great typicity:
Rosé Bandol: Roundness, fruity and generosity.
Red Bandol: Generosity, finesse, power, and above all great solar character.
Bandol white: Rather rare but it is a pity because Bandol Whites have a remarkable complex aromatic palette. The grape variety king of Bandol Red wine is the famous Mourvèdre, a difficult, demanding and above all unusual variety that brings structure and freshness to Bandol wines. It requires a strong sunshine because it is a slow-ripe grape variety. As an accessory, Grenache, Carignan and Cinsault play on the register of fruity and spices.
