Sables Rouges

The 5 Bandol terroirs collection.

The wine “Sables rouges” is named after the presence of iron oxide in the soils where the Mourvèdre vines‘ roots go deep to find nutrients. The Mourvèdre benefits from the presence of limestone pebbles that cool the soil in the hot summer months.

This round, mild and intense wine deserves attention with hints of red fruit and touches of liquorice. Good ageing potential.

The topsoil is sandy while the subsoil has a great proportion of limestone. This compels the vines to grow thin twisting roots which draw water up to 80 cm deep into the soil where the bedrock is impenetrable.

Beautiful deep garnet red deep, black. Very fine, complex and intense nose with notes of small black fruits, roasting and spices. The palate is rich, fleshy and velvety with melted tannins.
