2015 Domaine Vigneret Bandol Rouge
This dark, spicy and tasty classic Red Bandol is made from 75% Mourvedre, 10% Grenache, 10% Carignan and 5% Cinsault (manually harvested grapes) from amphitheater shaped patio vineyards, called " Restanques ", located between the two cities of Sanary and St Cyr. The vinification takes place in French oak barrels and after 18 months of storage the wine is bottled.
Domaine Vigneret produces mainly AOP Bandol wines on 16 ha but also AOP Côtes de Provence wines on 4.5 ha.
The majority of the vineyard is located on the slopes of the Cadière d’Azur from a very long blue clay quarry, exploited at the time by the ancestors of Olivier Pascal for the manufacture of tiles.
The vineyard, which benefits from a sunshine of 3000 hours per year, is broken down by the sea breezes of the valley of Saint-Côme which refresh and dry up the foliage during the nights.
As a result, the health status of the berries is more improved. Originating from an old vineyard family established in the Bandol terroir for several generations, Olivier Pascal has imposed rigorous and qualitative criteria: processing and vinification from natural products, reasoned agriculture, yields kept below 35 H / L per hectare per selective green harvest and respecting the bio-dynamic cycle of the vine especially for harvesting.
Mourvedre 75%, Grenache 10%, Cinsault 5%, Carignan 10%
