PREPARATION AND PRESENTATION OF WINE
Red wine BO RIVAGE is mainly produced from the Mourvèdre (80%), perhaps the most prized grape among AOP Bandol varietals. This grape is exceptionally rich in tannins and its flavors are intensified by an obligatory aging of at least during 18 months in the barrels. The Mourvedre grape is very demanding in terms of high temperatures during its growing cycle. Proper climatic conditions and the environment of AOP Bandol region predetermine the wine’s power and makes BO RIVAGE a well-aging wine. Recognized for its nourishing and aromatic qualities, Mourvedre is widely used in the elaboration and production of Chateauneuf-du-Pape and AOP Bandol wines. AOC Bandol is one of the oldest appellations of the Provence region. Located in a vast amphitheater of mountains between Sainte-Baume and Mont-Caume and surrounded by hills, the vineyard covers eight villages around the town of Bandol. The grapes are cultivated in terraces on some 1,100 ha, mainly on lime soil. Obtained by direct pressing, red wines BO RIVAGE benefit from a meticulous aging preparation throughout the winter months and is marketed starting from the 1 March following the harvest. Grown in Bandol, such varietals as Mourvedre, Grenache and Cinsault benefit from dry whitish arid lands making the wines rich on siliceous elements. In general, the typical yield of AOP Bandol is about 40 hl / ha maximum.
