Description

In 1954, Paul Bunan was living in Oran in Algeria when he first read about Bandol in a newspaper article. Marlon Brando had fallen in love with a young actress there, the daughter of a local fisherman. Some years later Paul recalled the name and when, in 1961 Algeria became independent, he and his brother Pierre relocated to Bandol in Provence near the Mediterranean coast. They bought the vineyard of Moulin de Costes and they soon carved out a reputation for producing characterful wines with a strong sense of terroir.

Today three generations of the Bunan family are involved with Domaines Bunan which now comprises three separate terroirs: the quintessential Provençal vineyard Moulin des Costes; the neighbouring Château la Rouvière; and the Bélouvé vineyards.

The family works closely together to create some of the best wines of the region. Their respect for and commitment to the land, the vines and the resulting wine is evident when they say that: ‘We can only make exceptional wines if we respect the vine.’ This dedication took a natural step in 2008 when the Estate began the process of Organic certification.

The family’s raison d’etre is summed up in their own words: ‘Our family of winemakers strive to reflect our philosophy and authenticity in the creation of our wines. We work together closely in order to make the Domaine’s heart beat, and help it to evolve whilst continuing to respect traditions to ensure that our deeply rooted legacy may live on.’

This robust wine is deep purple in colour with a violet hue. The intense nose of blackcurrant and prunes culminates in a harmonious mouthfeel with integrated tannins.

This wine is an excellent accompaniment to hearty dishes such as marinated meats, game, duck and other game fowl.
