La Bastide Blanche

Address: 367 Route des Oratoires, 83330 Sainte-Anne du Castellet

This Bandol estate was bought in 1973 by current owners Louis and Michel Bronzos’ father and has been constantly improved since then. The chalky soil shows particular affinity with the Mourvèdre-based red wines. Cultivated organically and harvested manually with low yields the wines are rich and intense. The red wines are aged in large foudres and barriques and have a richness of fruit and a gamey character which accompanies meat dishes well.
