PREPARATION AND PRESENTATION OF WINE
The Domaine des Estournois AOP Bandol rosé wine is memorable for its freshness, and the richness of scents which flow from the soils of the region’s native terraces. The soils of the region consist largely of calcareous clay. This wine is well-known and appreciated for its ability to retain its character even after years of conservation in cellars. Harvesting is done manually, both stalking and crushing. Fermentation is proceeded under controlled temperature between 16° and 18° C. The intensity of Mourvèdre aroma and its antioxidant power harmoniously combine with fruitiness of Grenache and freshness of Cinsault, which makes this rosé subtile and full-bodied. The AOP Bandol is one of the oldest appellations of Provence. It covers 8 towns around the city of Bandol. The average yield throughout the Bandol appellation is, on average, about 40 hl / ha.
