Winemaker Notes

This is a finely perfumed, elegant wine. It has a dark structure with a touch of wood, remarkable fruit concentration and dusty tannins that hang suspended within blackberry flavor. It's a wine with great potential.

Domaine Sorin, France
Domaine Sorin Winery Image
Located in the heart of the climatic basin of Bandol, this 32-acre vineyard is classified as part Bandol and part Cotes de Provence. The vineyard follows organic principles; soils are nourished with organic compost and worked without chemical products, so as to gain the best expression of the terroir.

The vineyard was taken over in 1994 by Luc Sorin, whom Robert Parker called one of the most exciting winegrowers the South of France has to offer. Sorin wines are found on the finest tables in the region, such as Louis XV in Monaco, le Cartlon in Cannes, and Chez Blanc in Vonnas.

More than just a European vacation hotspot and the rosé capital of the world, Provence is a coastal, southeastern French appellation increasingly producing interesting wines of all colors. The warm, breezy Mediterranean climate is ideal for grape growing and the diverse terrain and soil types allow for a variety of wine styles within the region. Adjacent to the Rhône Valley, Provence shares some characteristics with its northwestern neighbor—namely, the fierce Mistral wind and the plentiful wild herbs (such as rosemary, lavender, juniper and thyme) often referred to as ‘garrigue.’ The largest appellation here is Côtes de Provence, followed by Coteaux d’Aix-en-Provence.

Provence is internationally acclaimed for its dry, refreshing, pale-hued rosé wines, which make up the vast majority of the region’s production. These are typically blends, often dominated by Mourvèdre and supplemented by Grenache, Cinsault, Tibouren, and other varieties.

A small amount of full-bodied, herbal white wine is made here—particularly from the Cassis appellation, from Clairette and Marsanne. Other white varieties used throughout Provence include Roussane, Sémillon, Vermentino (known locally as Rolle) and Ugni blanc.

Perhaps the most interesting wines of the region, however, are the red wines of Bandol. Predominantly Mourvèdre, these are powerful, structured, and ageworthy wines with lush berry fruit and savory characteristics of earth and spice.
