2014 Bastide de la Ciselette Bandol Rouge
Bandol Rouge has never been widespread in the US market, which is odd, as it is the Provençal equivalent of the greatest Bordeaux—dark, deeply complex red wine that will age a lifetime. For me, it’s like blending great Châteauneuf-du-Pape, Burgundy, and Bordeaux into one. he Bastide de la Ciselette, based on a hill right in the heart of the Naming Bandol, dominates its vineyard. It is with the Vintage wine 2010 that the adventure began with Robert De Salvo, collecting wine grower. The Bastide de la Ciselette exploits 15 hectares with an essential production of Bandol and some Local wine of the Var. Bandol Rosé represents the majority production. Bandol Rouge, produced in reduced quantity, is the result of a rigorous fragmented selection and a choice refined by grape to offer an elegant, fruity and silky complex wine.
