The emblematic cuvée from this domaine, requiring at least 10 years in the cellar to reveal itself in all its rich and aromatically complex glory. More info

This Bandol red is the emblematic cuvée from this domaine, blending primarily Mourvèdre grapes with a touch of Vieux Grenache. Grapes are vinified in whole clusters in temperature-regulated concrete tanks and the wine matures for 4 years in old oak barrels, giving this wine its strong tannic structure. It takes a good 10 years in the cellar to fully showcase its explosive bouquet of dark fruits and roasted coffee and lip-smacking palate with notes of truffle and cocoa. It comes as no surprise that this cuvée is the perfect accompaniment to hearty red meat.

Bandol Château Pradeaux Famille Portalis serve at a temperature of 16°C. It will pair perfectly with the following dishes: Daube de joue de boeuf provençale, Faisan rôti, Civet de sanglier ou de lièvre.

Information about domain Château Pradeaux

One of Bandol's top producers, Château Pradeaux has been owned by the Portalis family since 1752. It was on this date that the Comte Jean-Marie-Etienne Portalis inherited the property; he subsequently became a minister under Napoleon and participated in the creation of France's Civil Code. In the aftermath of the Second World War, the Comtesse de Portalis came to live at Château Pradeaux and decided to plant a vineyard at the property, which had previously only grown olives. Her nephew Cyrille Portalis has managed the estate since 1983. Château Pradeaux's vines are planted in clay-limestone soil and gently cooled by the Mediterranean breeze. These conditions are particularly well-suited to Mourvèdre, the predominant grape in the property's grand vin. The vineyard is managed using traditional methods: chemical treatments are kept to a minimum and yields are strictly limited. Harvests are entirely manual and the grapes are not destemmed. After vinification, the wines are matured for at least three years in oak casks.
