Domaine Castell-Reynoard

Bandol is the great red wine of Provence. Appellation regulations require the wine to be at least 50% Mourvèdre blended with either Grenache or Cinsault, with some Syrah and Carignan allowed. In Bandol allowed yields are among the lowest in France. Bandol is the only French appellation where Mourvèdre is showcased as a leader, though the varietal has become a popular blending component from the southern Rhône through the Côtes de Provence all the way through Languedoc and Roussillon. Mourvèdre produces small, thick-skinned berries that can result in a wine high in tannins, high in alcohol, and low in acidity, with gamey, meaty, brambly and herbal flavors.

Domaine Castell-Reynoard is a small family-owned property of only about three acres in the heart of Bandol. The Domaine's grapes are harvested by hand and given eighteen months cask aging.
