Wine Enthusiast Review
Rated 94
Almost entirely Mourvèdre, the wine is beautifully perfumed rich in spice and with black fruits that have a seriously structured character. With its density and its firm tannins, the wine should develop further. Drink from 2025.

Wine Tasting Notes
Bandol boasts one of the most ancient vineyards in France, with its roots tracing back to the Romans who planted the first vine 2,500 years ago. Among the esteemed domaines of Bandol is Chateau Vannieres, which has gained recognition for its exceptional quality. Acquired by Gaston Boisseaux in 1957, this property has been passed down to his son Eric, a passionate winemaker who focuses on creating wines with concentration, finesse, and elegance that can gracefully age for up to 30 years.

The Chateau Vannieres Bandol Red wine presents itself with a dense color and subtle amber rim variations. On the nose, one can detect a harmonious blend of quince, figs, liquorice, pepper, mint, and a delicate ethereal touch. While the initial taste is smooth, the tannins retain a firmness, accompanied by hints of vegetation and spices that add complexity to the overall experience.

This exquisite wine is best enjoyed alongside dishes that complement its rich flavors, such as truffle-infused delicacies, grilled or baked duck, lamb, beef, and game meats. The careful craftsmanship and dedication to tradition in the vineyard farming practices contribute to the exceptional quality that Chateau Vannieres Bandol Red is known for, making it a standout choice for wine enthusiasts seeking a sophisticated and memorable tasting experience.
