The wines of four vineyards in the Bandol AOC area are made, aged and distributed exclusively by Moulin de la Roque. Each of them is the expression of a specific terroir and winegrower’s know-how. All of these wines win acclaim in international wine competitions and guides.
DOMAINE de NARTETTE
The vineyard – which coils around a typical Provence house – is mainly planted with Mourvèdre, with a complement of Cinsault and Grenache.
Clairette, Ugni, Vermentino and Bourboulenc bring freshness and elegance to this delicate white Bandol.
This exceptional site near the calanque of Port d’Alon in St. Cyr sur Mer is part of a protected area belonging to the French Coastal Protection agency. The soil is composed of pebbles and the closeness of the Mediterranean gives wines with finesse and character along with a slightly saline finish.
The wines of Domaine de Nartette are certified organic.
DOMAINE La RAGLE
This family-owned wine estate lies on a terroir of sandy marl. Most of the vineyard plots are located in Le Castellet in the localities of La Ragle and Caday.
The wines are round and delicious, and produced in accordance with the HVE 3 (High Environmental Value) standard.
DOMAINE des CAPÉLANIERS
Domaine des Capélaniers is the picture-postcard Provençal vineyard with its terraces or “restanques” and ancient olive trees.
On the road leading to Sainte-Anne-du-Castellet, a traditional stone building can be seen alongside the ruins of an oil mill.
In the 1970s, this former farm decided to abandon mixed farming to devote itself exclusively to the production of Bandol wines.
Its wines are charming and robust, elegant and full-bodied, and complex yet accessible at the same time.
The vineyard is currently certified HVE 3 but its conversion to organic winegrowing has now been underway for two years.
DOMAINE du VALDARAY
The family that runs this estate have devoted all their passion and energy to revitalising the land left to them by their ancestors. Conserving the vineyard’s traditional restanques (terraces) and growing limited yields, the estate is certified HVE 3 and is shortly to be certified organic.
Its wines grow on sandy soils with black marl and are classic examples of Bandol that pair perfectly with Provençal cuisine.
