A delicious white wine from this legendary Bandol producer. Lafran-Veyrolles are an ancient estate who now offer the best of modern Provence from fruit that is organically grown. This one is a classic blend of local white grapes that makes a stylush and characterful aperitif or seafood wine. Allocations are low and stocks will fly!

Overview

Grape

Approximately 70% Clairette 30% Ugni blanc

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.

What The Critics Say

Parker's Wine Advocate, Jeb Dunnuck (2014 vintage)

The Clairette-dominated 2014 Bandol Blanc (there’s 30% Ugni Blanc in the blend) is a medium-bodied, exotic, spicy and mineral-laced white where the fruit takes a back seat. Medium-bodied, bright, fresh and crisp, it’s a good meal starter to enjoy over the coming year.
