Domaine de la Tour du Bon 2016 Bandol Rouge, Bandol, Provence, France

Winemaker: Agnès Henry

Farming: Organic

Variety: 55% Mourvedre, plus Grenache, Cinsault, Carignan

Terroir: Le Brûlat du Castellet, in the northwestern corner of the A.O.C. Bandol. 38-year-old average vines on Clay, Limestone, Silt, Sandstone. The Domaine is situated at an altitude of 150 meters above sea-level—a  high point on this coastal appellation where maritime breezes cool the  arid climate. Fourteen hectares of red earth, clay, sand, and gravel  rest upon sturdy limestone bedrock. Brow-beating excavation and focused  determination alone have built these vineyards.

Vinification: Grapes are harvested by hand and de-stemmed. Traditional vinification with indigenous yeasts follows, with a judicious use of punch-downs and pump-overs.

Aging: Wines age in foudres for 18 months before bottling
