Region

BANDOL, Rhone & Southern France

Bandol is located in Provence in the southeast of France. It has a Mediterranean climate with mild winters and hot summers and most of the vineyards are on south-facing terraces known locally as ‘restanques'. Yields in Bandol are some of the lowest in France and potential for quality is high.This region is one of the few parts of France in which Mourvèdre, the characteristic grape of Bandol, can be relied upon to ripen. It produces a red wine that is dark purple in colour with a deep and dense bouquet of spicy-plummy fruit with complex flavours including vanilla, cassis, cinnamon, and sweet herbs. Grenache and Cinsault are also allowed in the blend but there has to be a minimum of 50% Mourvèdre. These ripe red wines can be enjoyed in youth but are also fantastic ‘vins de gard'. The same grape varieties are also used to produce Bandol rosé wine which accountsfor one third of Bandol production. These wines have more body, structure and individuality compared to your average Provence rosé. There is a small amount of Bandol white made from Clairette, Bourboulenc and/or Ugni Blanc, which are fresher and more fragrant than they used to be. However most of these are consumed locally.
