Bandol Blanc La Bastide Blanche, Stéphane Bourret 2014
La Bastide Blanche, Bandol
Stéphane Bourret and his team have improved La Bastide wines’ quality beyond recognition. Despite the pressure of the many tourists ready to buy almost anything at any price, he has chosen a path of quality and hard work. Most of the estate is now run with bio-dynamic methods and the results are stupefying with most wines awarded great accolades in the national and international wine press.
Recommended by The Guardian's David Williams (October 2014), Bandol Blanc La Bastide Blanche 2013 is full bodied and creamy with a crisp acidity and tangy mandarin and preserved lemon notes that provide structure, complexity and beautiful balance. This is just the sort of wine to transport you back to the balmy summer evenings of your holidays in Provence!
Grapes: Clairette, Ugni Blanc, Bourboulenc, Sauvignon Blanc
