Intro to Domain Lafran Veyrolles –
Domaine Lafran Veyrolles in Bandol in France is made from Mourvedre, Cinsualt and Grenache and is pale salmon pink in colour with fruity floral aromas and a lovely warm round fruity palate with good length and delicious flavours.
Full tasting note and wine making –
This Bandol Rose from Lafran Veyrolles is a beautiful pale salmon colour with an appealing herbal nose followed by flavours of warm southern herbs, rich, rounded fruit. It is very much a food wine.
The vineyards and winery of this small domaine are managed by Jean-Marie Castell, who has continued the traditional winemaking style of the estate. Harvesting for most grape varieties begins in early September and finishes towards the end of the month with the Mourvèdre. Traditional manual vineyard work remains along with organic methods of weed and pest control though they are not certified Organic but in conversion. The ‘rustic’ facilities of old have been replaced with modern, temperature controlled systems. The rosé is part saignée juice from the Mourvèdre that is drained off and part press from other grapes. Fermentation is in tanks and the wine is then kept in cuve for 6 months before bottling the following spring.
The producer –
Domaine Lafran-Veyrolles is an estate with a superb terroir and is widely recognised as one of the top three producers in the appellation. Jean-Marie Castell runs this small, traditional estate with just 10 ha of vines on the famous red clay soil of Bandol. The estate nestles in and is protected by the hills of the Cadière d’Azur and benefits from a maritime climate. The estate works organically and the yields are kept extremely low. Domaine Lafran Veyrolles reds have made it one of the star performers of the appellation but dont overlook the rosé wines as they deserve attention too!
Drink with –
Lovely aperitif with olives and tapenade or serve with shellfish, grilled chicken, spicy vegetable dishes.
