2014 • AC Bandol wines • Red wine • 14,5°
This subtle and refined wine is the flagship cuvée of our house.
This cuvée beautifully illustrates the richness and complexity of the Mourvèdre grape variety, the terroir of Bandol and also the expertise of the winegrowers and that of the technichal staff of the Moulin de la Roque. The soil is mainly typical red sand and black marl.
The wine is based mainly on Mourvèdre and matured for not less than 18 months in big oak barrels, hence its long ageing potential.

A nice easy-drinking wine.
The personality of this cuvee comes from the mosaic of terroirs where the vines are grown.
The wine is matured in big oak barrels (foudres) for at least 18 months and is based on grapes coming from various parcels including a majority of 25 –year-old vines with a northeast exposure.

• AC Bandol wines • White wine • 13,5°
A nice easy-drinking wine.
This wine will undoubtedly appeal to you just as it will surprise you at the same time. Flavours of garrigue scrubland, Mediterranean sea sprays, wonderful freshness and superb minerality are what give this wine its magical side.
This incredible character stems from a selection of parcels under maritime influence and mainly located on “rudist” limestone terroirs.

Archaeological remains indicate that as early as the 6th century B.C., men manually shaped Bandol’s landscape by crafting terraced vineyards (locally known as “restanques”). Dry stone walls were built to hold back the earth but also the water which is essential to the life of these vineyards clinging to little fertile hillsides.
It was in the 1930’s that- thanks to a handful of winegrowers determined to produce quality wines- Bandol wines won acclaim. Following hard work selecting the most suitable varietals, terroir studies carried out by geologists and a combination of ancestral and modern practices, Bandol winegrowers have reaped the fruit of their labors.
Bandol was first officially established as an appellation in 1941 and was among the first appellations to be recognized by the Institut National des Apellations d’Origine.
The 198 winegrowers or so of Moulin de La Roque- all sharing the same deep belief that quality is the key word- today continue to perpetuate this heritage.
Strenuous efforts and dogged perseverance towards improving quality are every day rewarded by satisfied and faithful customers.
