Description

Two brothers, Paul and Pierre Bunan, relocated to Bandol in Provence near the Mediterranean coast after Algerian independence in 1961 and bought the vineyard of Moulin de Costes. 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 wine is made from Clairette grapes, a variety that was once widely grown but in France is now centred on a few areas in the south, including Bandol. It is fermented in stainless steel vats to retain the freshness, resulting in a wine which has a pale golden hue, a subtle and delicate bouquet and flavours of apple, citrus and white stone fruit, reflected in the finish.

This wine is delicious with all fish dishes and goat’s cheese.
