Ugni Blanc, Clairette, Bourboulenc, Sauvignon Blanc. Located in the heart of Bandol, La Bastide Blanche is a family-owned wine estate established in the commune of Castellet, in the Var department, since 1972. The wine expresses all the richness of this exceptional terroir.
|In the early ‘70s Michel and Louis Bronzo acquired the property of the Bastide Blanche, with an eye to produce from appellation Bandol wines the equal of more famous appellations like Cha^teauneuf. Their painstaking efforts were rewarded in 1993 when vintage conditions created the benchmark year to put Bandol in general and Bastide-Blanche, in particular, on the map of top producers in France. Common each year to their success are their very low yields, never more than 34 or 35 Hl/Ha, and simply impeccable cellar conditions and attention. Situated in St. Anne de Castellet, a terroir of Bandol rich in limestone. This, and the high proportion of Mourve`dre gives this domaine some of the most ripe and expressive of Bandol.
