Tasting Notes

Aromas of smoked meats, roasted herbs, blackberry, currant, and anise. The palate is complex and layered of ripe fruits, bacon fat, and bay leaf, with silky tannins and a fruit driven finish.

About

With cellars dating from the 16th century near the village of Castellet, Chateau Vannieres is one of the great domaines in Provence. It consists of 47 hectares, 33 of which are planted to vines, with clay-limestone soil and an average age of 35 years. Agriculture is sustainable. Eric Boisseaux and his son (the family hails originally from Burgundy) craft exceptionally expressive wines from the traditional varietals of the area: Mourvedre, Grenache and Cinsault. All the grapes are harvested by hand and destemmed. Each varietal and each parcel are fermented separately so that the estate can retain maximum flexibility in blending the different elements of each cuvee.
