Producer's Notes: Late harvest, totally stalked. Maceration for 21 days in stainless steel vats or in wooden coneshaped tanks. Traditional maturation in casks.
Deep ruby. Powerful bouquet with a delicate woody nose, and predominant aromas of red fruit, mulberry and raspberry. Full bodied, well balanced with rounded tannins. Hints of pepper, liquorice and violet.
Heirs to a rich wine-making tradition handed down from their father and grandfather, the Bunans continue to preserve and uphold the authenticity and integrity of their vineyards. In 1961, Paul and Pierre Bunan, men steeped in the wine-growing lore of the Mediterranean, fell in love with an estate in the Bandol region, a noble and widely respected wine growing area in the south of France. Paul’s son, Laurent, has returned to the family estate after completing his studies in oenology and winemaking in California, the first of the next generation. Laurent is now in charge of export and development for the estate. His sister Françoise is in charge of communications, with art also playing an integral role in her strategy. Pierre’s daughter Claire has qualified in the field of wine marketing and her brother Philippe hopes to become an agricultural engineer.
The combined talents of this family unite to create a warm, welcoming and highly skilled team. Excellence and authenticity are the hallmarks of this family who pride themselves on producing wines of exceptional quality.
