Description

70% Mourvèdre, 15% Grenache, 15% Cinsault.

Red Bandol is all too under-appreciated in Australia, with the wild fruits and invigorating acid of the Mourvèdre grape making this a seriously appealing style. Initially coiled, this gives way to plum, vintage Port fruit and crunchy forest berries carrying a little baking spice, tobacco and dark chocolate flavours. A clean style, there’s a lovely density to the flavours which continue to open with air, nodding to a promising future in the cellar, though it’s pretty delicious already. Some crunchy minerals to finish and sinewy tannins render this a very complete package.

Domaine Gueissard / Bandol

Young Gun, New Wave Bandol

Established in 2009 and with Felixir since 2013, this young producer’s steady progress has been heartening. Our first meeting was in their rented shed/winery in the industrial part of Sanary-sur-Mer. Since then, vigneron couple Clément Minne and Pauline Giraud have bought out their silent partners, and acquired and renovated a winery right in the heart of Bandol’s vines – a testament to their ambition and hard work.

6 hectares are owned and 12 hectares of vines leased and fully managed by the duo, with negociant parcels supplementing production of entry wines. The buzz at Gueissard is familiar as with any ‘young gun’ operation – a streak of mischief and humour underpins serious talent and skill. Clément worked at Domaine Tempier before the duo gained overseas winemaking experience, prior to setting up their own estate. An interesting counterpoint to the Old Guard producers of Bandol, pricing for provenance here is highly attractive, and this remains a producer to watch.
