Provence's reputation as a wine-producing region has been gathering speed recently, and while its principal ambassador is undoubtedly rosé, there are now a good deal of impressive reds around too. It is the sunniest and driest region in France, and because of this the region does not suffer from many of the fungal diseases that affect other areas. This makes it very well suited to organic viticulture, a methodology and philosophy we always endeavour to champion. Varieties that flourish here include Grenache, Cinsaut, Carignan, Cabernet Sauvignon, Tibouren and Rolle.

Acquired by Comte Henri de St-Victor in 1977, a successful businessman who spotted the potential of the then derelict estate, the resurrected Château has been restored to its full glory, but more importantly for us, so have the glorious vines that surround it. Since the initial regeneration program was initiated, the estate has grown exponentially, now covering a 50 hectare area. The Bandol is traditionally home to rough wines, as a result of the granite based soils, yet Pibarnon stands out as producing remarkably subtle and sophisticated wines, thanks in the most part to the altitude of the vineyards and their limestone bedrock.

Blanc de Leoube, Chateau Leoube, 2013Blanc de Leoube, Chateau Leoube, 2013Our price: £19.00ViewLocated on the Cape Bénat, a protected nature reserve, Château Léoube is a truly stunning establishment. It is owned by Lord and Lady Banford. Relatively acidic soils, which contain considerable deposits of clay ensures that vines are properly hydrated and have the potential to store moisture when necessary. Also the owners of Daylesford Organic Farm in Gloucestershire, those at the helm have adopted a primitive approach to production that, in their opinion, enhances the terroirs rather than leach it of nutrients.

Duffort himself has been acclaimed as the key to the estate’s success, thrice being name by Guide Hachette – the well-known annual French Encyclopaedic wine guide – in their list of top winemakers.

Named after the river which flows through the heart of the estate – the ‘Real Mauresque’ – Domaine Rimauresq is the home of 9 grape varieties that are cultivated to produce red and white as well as rose wines – which are known for being slightly darker than many other examples of rose from the region.
