    Château Val d’Arenc

    80% Mourvèdre, 10% Grenache, 10% Cinsault (13.5% alc.)

    Log in to view prices

    This is a Bandol Rosé with a particularly high percentage of the mourvèdre grape which helps to enhance the fruit and reduce the alcohol (higher proportions of grenache give more alcohol). Good proportion of old vines, west-facing, and in conversion to organic certification. Terrific tension and freshness with a saline hint on the finish. For drinking now to 2017.

    This wine comes from 39 year old vines planted on limestone-clay hillsides with siliceous sub-soils. Yields are 26hh (viticulture is organically certified) and the wine has been aged for six months in cuve. Mid-gold in colour the wine is very pure and precise, with complex fruit hinting at melon, straw, fennel, anise, with notable balance and freshness.  On the finish there is a little sea-salt, and an attractive bitterness. For drinking now to 2023.

    Château Ste Anne

    Ste Anne’s red has an exceptional colour - a clear mid-raspberry extending right to the edge. On the nose you find black fruits, liquorice, a hint of game and a lightly saline note. The palate is supple and mid-weight, with black fruits, liquorice, truffle and leather. It is very elegant wine (an extremely rare quality for most mourvèdre!), drinking beautifully now though will age very well. For drinking now to 2025.
