Piled with dark fruit and spice, this superb Bandol is the classic expression of the Mourvedre grape in all its depth and roundness. An utterly authentic Mediterranean red, this wine was gravity-bottled, unfiltered and unfined. Although it can age for a decade or more, with five years on the clock it is drinking beautifully now. Unique to us - get in before the vintage flips.

Overview

Grape

95% Mourvedre, 5% Grenache

Its Origins

Located a few kilometers from the Mediterranean, along one of the renowned terroirs of Bandol, the “chemin de L’argile” (clay path), close to the famed Pibarnon estate. Jean-Marie Castel is the vineyard manager and vintner here, with ownership stemming down from the Ferec family for a few generations. The estate farms about 10 hectares, of which 6.5 is Mourvedre, with the rest Grenache, Cinsault, Clairette and Ugni Blanc. They also rent 2 hectares of vines, mostly to be used in the rosé. Vineyard management is almost organic, or “lutte raisonnée”, and the work is all manual (including hand harvesting - a stipulation all over the Bandol AOC). Very traditional.
