On the tongue, the 2020 Bandol Blanc from Château de Pibarnon reveals bright and exotic fruity notes of lemon, melon and star fruit and its typical powerful spiciness that clearly catapults anise, ginger and an intensely salty flavour to the fore. Lemons, firm pear, medlar and almonds make the start and unite directly with fennel, broom, camomile and lime blossom.

Wine information

The 2020 Bandol Blanc is a cuvée of 55 % Clairette, 30 % Bourboulenc and 20 % other regional grape varieties. The vines are planted on a north-facing slope on blue marl, as known from the Jura, for example, from Château Chalon, or from the vineyards of Pétrus in Pomerol and d'Yquem in Sauternes. The grapes were pressed directly, the sediments were allowed to settle naturally, and then the juice was fermented spontaneously at low temperature for 25 days. The wine was aged in stainless steel and a small amount in wood.

Color

Light golden yellow with silvery reflections.

Nose

Lemons, firm pear, medlar and almonds make the start and unite directly with fennel, broom, camomile and lime blossom. More oxygen adds scents of aniseed, cuttlefish and ginger. Wonderful are the aromas of vineyard peach, which appear either after the spirited decanting into the carafe or after a day of opening.

Palate

On the tongue, the 2020 Bandol Blanc from Château de Pibarnon reveals bright and exotic fruity notes of lemon, melon and star fruit and its typical powerful spiciness, which clearly catapults anise, ginger and an intensely salty flavour to the fore. A white wine like a thunderbolt that transports us directly to the southern realms of Provence. As soon as you taste it, you can feel the aroma and taste of the cuisine that accompanies it.
