So What?

"There is the appellation of Bandol with its plethora of producers, some good, some mediocre; and then there is Château Pradeaux, the unique, inimitable, standard-bearer for this ancient wine-growing district. The Château Pradeaux is situated on the outskirts of the town of Saint Cyr-sur-Mer that lies directly on the Mediterranean Ocean between Toulon and Marseilles. The estate has been in the hands of the Portalis family since before the French Revolution.

The vineyards are cultivated in as natural a manner as possible with reliance on organic methods. In fact, for many years during the spring months sheep grazed in the vineyards thereby eliminating any need to use herbicides and at the same time providing a natural compost.

The iconic Bandol Rosé from Château Pradeaux is a cornerstone of our portfolio, comprising 70% Mourvèdre, 25% Cinsault, and 5% Grenache, from vines up to 80 years old. Fermented spontaneously and aged on its fine lees in a combination of steel and cement, it is both structured and fine, with spice-laden fruit and a depth which very few rosés attain—even in this hallowed appellation."
