Bandol

Arguably the most significant appellation in Provence, Bandol produces spicy, earthy, rich red wines. These tend to be big and well-structured, relying on the Mourvèdre grape for their power. Vines in Bandol are grown in very meager soils of gravel, clay, and limestone: this, combined with the hot, dry coastal climate, gives these thick-skinned berries exactly what they need in order to thrive.
