A characterful cuvée produced only in exceptional vintage years. Pair with food of equal strength and depth, such as boudin noir sausage. Open several hours prior to serving, even the day before! More info

Born out of a desire to showcase the best of the Mourvèdre variety on the domaine, this cuvée was first produced in 1987 and only in the most exceptional years since. This rigorous traditional provençal variety is complemented by a touch of Carignan to give an attractive incandescence to the wine. Both varieties are harvested by hand and macerate for 20 days with indigenous yeasts and regular pump-overs. Following a 19 month maturation in foudre, the wine is bottled without fining or filtration. Open some time in advance of serving – even the day before – to accompany red meat or boudin noir sausage with apple.

Bandol La Tour du Bon Saint Ferréol Agnès Henry serve at a temperature of 16°C. It will pair perfectly with the following dishes: Côte de boeuf au poivre, Tajine aux pruneaux, Tapenade.

Information about domain La Tour du Bon

La Tour du Bon owes its name to the watchtower which once stood on the highest point of this domaine, protecting the village from approaching danger. The first vineyards were planted here in 1955 and the Hoquard family acquired the property in 1968, carrying out major works on the vineyard before their daughter Agnès took to the helm in 1990. Agnès still runs the domaine today, which continues to improve year on year. The vineyard has been certififed organic since 2014 and their wines have distinct personality and harmony, with excellent cellaring potential.
