In terms of grape varieties, Mourvèdre, the sign of the excellence of Bandol wine, is ever-present in red wine, to which more than half of the site is dedicated.
Mixed with 10% of Grenache, this late-ripening, rich and strong grape variety gives a unique aromatic taste and offers ecxceptionnal ageing potential.
It is also the base for rosé, along with Grenache. It allows, combined with ageing in barrels – for small quantities – to slowly become a rosé of high quality.
We want to take advantage of direct contact with wine connoisseurs, with the wine cellar or the hostels. Because of this, we can share our conviction that it is not only rosé which is important
The desire to leave our comfort zone is shown with white wine, which here represents 15% of the production, when the average of the appellation is 5%.
La Clairette gives it all its fine quality regarding as much for Bandol – associated with Bourboulenc and a touch of Rolle, as for Reppe – associated with Ugni Blanc.
A particular merit needs to be given to Carignan, a red wine which is better when it is given time to mature! An outstanding example of this is La Reppe, of which the base is 70%, along with Mourvèdre and Cinsault.
