Bandol Wine

Bandol

Bandol is the most interesting and quality-oriented appellation in Provence. It is best known for its serious, ageworthy wines made mostly from Mourvedre. In all the world, this is where Mourvedre achieves its loftiest expression. The reds must be aged for at least 18 months in barrel before release, and the best, from the likes of Pradeaux and Tempier, can improve for decades in bottle.

The climate here is Mediterranean, and some rose and white wine is also made to accommodate the heat and the seafood-centric cuisine. The main white varieties are Clairette, Bourboulenc, Ugni Blanc, and Sauvignon Blanc.
