One of the rosés that contributed to Provence's worldwide renown. More info

The Mourvèdre and Cinsault vines made to produce the famous Bandol face the sea and grow in clay-chalk terroir. Whilst the château is now in the process of converting to organics, a particular respect has always been accorded to the environment in the vines and the winery alike. The grapes are harvested by hand and only indigenous yeasts are used for fermentation. After direct pressing, the juice is then matured on lees to give it an extra dimension in terms of aromas and structure. A veritable gastronomic rosé, it has a salmon pink hue and its bouquet gives off notes of white flowers, spices and fresh fruit. The palate hits instantly with a saltiness worthy of the finest Provence rosé. This wine can easily be kept for a few years before being enjoyed. In terms of food pairings, this cuvée can do much more than an aperitif, being perfect to serve with fish or even a lovely meat dish.

Bandol Château Pradeaux Famille Portalis serve at a temperature of 10°C. It will pair perfectly with the following dishes: Terrine de Saint-Jacques, Gravelax de saumon, Verrines de la mer.

Information about domain Château Pradeaux

The history of Château Pradeaux dates back to 1752 when Jean-Marie-Etienne Portalis, lawyer and co-creator of the Civil Code, bought the property. Nine generations later, Etienne Portalis carries the family heritage with him all whilst moving with the times. He has thus undertaken a conversion to organic growing and is looking into older grape varieties that might better resist the climate crisis. A veritable institution in Provence, particularly in Bandol, Château Pradeaux puts Mourvèdre at centre stage, the landmark grape variety taking up 95% of the 19 hectares of vines. Originally from Spain, it is said that this grape flourishes with its roots in the water and tis head in the sunshine. The domain’s soils are largely composed of clay and chalk, offering the vine an exceptional water reserve during the heat of summer. The rosés, unmatched in their style, have a wonderful mouthfeel and certain vintages have a lovely vinosity. The reds have a dense texture, a superb colour and an ageing potential of several decades.
