“Concentrated red berry and citrus fruit flavors supported by a spine of juicy acidity. Shows strong tenacity on the mineral-driven finish, which leaves behind a hint of candied flowers.”

“The vines from La Brûlade, the highest point in Bandol at 1,200 feet, make this rich and dense wine. Perfumed and still packed with dark tannins to nourish the juicy black fruits, it is structured and concentrated. Drink from 2024. Organic”

White wines of Provence: The selection of the "Le Monde"

The art of grafting explained in this short video by Nicolas Labat

The art of grafting explained in this short video by Nicolas Labat

In order to counter global warming, periods of drought and wood diseases, we plant wild rooted vines which we graft with mourvèdre or other varieties on the third leaf. It allows the vine plant to develops its own strong root system in the place where it will live.
This represents a significant investment, patience and a trained team, but we are rewarded with the results

La Brulade 2017 in the WineEnthusiast

La Brulade 2017 in the WineEnthusiast

“This wine comes from the highest point of the Bégude estate, a 1,200-foot elevation overlooking the Mediterranean. Wood aged and offering spiciness as well as acidity and red fruits, the wine is almost entirely produced from structured Mourvèdre. Tannins and perfumes partner with the intensely juicy fruits. Drink this wine from 2022.”
