Unit price

60% Grenache and 40% Merlot from Provence (declassified), France; light plus bodied and dry, lean and mineral driven with notes of wild strawberry, cling peach, citrus, wet stone, and herbs, with subtly savory and earthy undertones, bright acidity, and a clean finish. HVE with biodynamic practices.

The vineyards are farmed organically, with some biodynamic practices- no use of pesticides or herbicides. They follow the lunar calendar and plow by horse. The decision to label lutte raisonnee is one of caution should it be necessary due to unforeseen climatic circumstances. Deeper soil, richer than Bandol, with less rocky, limestone soils that define Bandol. This terroir gives about 30% more yield than in the Bandol AOC.

Hand harvested. The grapes are fermented at low temperatures. Pressing via pneumatic press, then static settling for 48 hours. No acidification. Addition of about 5% of the pressed Bandol juice. Aged four months in tank.
