Château Vannières

Château Vannières is located between the villages of Cadiere d’Azur and Saint-Cyr-sur-Mer. The Domaine was purchased in 1957 by Lucien Boudot, vigneron in Beaujolais and in the Rhone valley, and is currently owned by his nephew Eric Boisseaux who manages it with his son Charles-Eric. The appellation Bandol takes its name from the homonymous village of the Cote d'Azur and is among the smallest appellations of origin of Provence (Cotes de Provence AOC has 20000 hectares while Bandol only 1325). After the phylloxera decimated the vineyards of Provence, the Vignerons of the area had the brilliant intuition of replanting the vineyards with Mourvèdre (known in Spain with the name of Monastrell). Mourvèdre is a black grape variety that ripens very slowly and is particularly suitable for arid and hot climates such as Bandol. The vineyards are located inland, on terraces that are part of a normal amphitheater of hills. Bandol produces fantastic Clairette-based white wines, world-class rosé capable of aging and strong and intense reds based on Mourvèdre which require years of aging and are very different from those grown in the hottest Spain. Bandol produces very different rosé wines compared to Cotes de Provence. The high proportion of Mourvèdre combined with the particular terroir and climate of the area means that they are pink with aging potential even up to 10 years, gradually changing the aromas from fresh (white peach, watermelon etc ...) to evolved (porcini mushrooms, rose and strawberry jam). The color also varies from pastel pink to more orange tones.
