About The Wine
A classic Provence style rose, dry with a hint of strawberries and a stoney minerality.
About Chateau Vannieres
An ancient Domaine dating back to 1547, but more recently acquired by Lucien Boudot, a winegrower up in Burgundy. Today the Domaine is farmed by his grandson and great grandson Eric and Charles-Eric.
The vineyards are largely limestone, and what first attracted us to their flagship Bandol Rosé was the way it drank almost like a great white Burgundy. Delicate extraction with white and rosé made entirely in stainless, including a year on lees without stirring.
Region: Bandol, Provence
Varietal: Cinsault, Grenache, Mourvèdre
