Organic. This is Pibarnon’s top wine, and one of the great ‘mountain Bandols’. It’s a blend of 90% Mourvèdre and 10% Grenache drawn from the estate’s high-altitude restanques. The altitude, the influence of the sea and the limestone/clay soils all bring a freshness and purity that is rare among Mediterranean reds. This cuvée is based only on the fruit of the oldest vines and finest terraces of Château de Pibarnon, including Bel-Air, La Grande Paguette, La Falaise, Les Pointes Blanches, Le Col and Les Dolmens.

Reviews

“Like the Restanque de Pibarnon, the 2011 Bandol Rouge shows the sunnier nature of the vintage with its sexy, layered personality. More elegant, seamless and polished, with slightly finer tannin, it offers up beautiful notes of black raspberries, currants, licorice and spice in a supple, medium to full-bodied, balanced, seamless style that will keep nicely for another decade at least.”
