Sustainable - Lutte Raisonnée, HVE
80% Mourvèdre, 20% Grenache
Vineyards & Viticulture
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 raisonnée is one of caution should it be necessary due to unforeseen climatic circumstances. The Bandol Rouge is sourced from the few acres of old vines that immediately surround the estate.
Harvest & Vinification
The grapes are hand harvested and destemmed. Native yeast fermentation with the use of remontage (pump over). Skin contact for three weeks before light pressing. Aged in large foudres for 18 months.
