Château de Pibarnon
> Bandol 2012 Red
The Saint-Victors have produced Bandols for almost forty years in this little corner of Paradise at the edge of La Cadière d'Azur.
Eric has been at the head of the 65 hectares (15 being cultivated) since 2000. A mosaic of 250 plots at an average altitude of 300 metres of white limestone Triassic soils giving an aromatic finesse and great elegance to the wines, and the famous blue marl Santonian (like Petrus, Yquem ...)
The estate has been organic for over ten years. Mourvèdre (combined with 10% Grenache), spends 20 months in casks, producing an elegant wine discreetly spicy with hints of menthol and liquorice, with already velvety tannins.
