Back to Bandol

We spotted another Bandol wine and were transported to our summer retreat in Provence…

Chateau Sainte-Anne is an old-fashioned family winery we visited in June. The vintner met us under the trees at the vineyard with a line-up of vintages. After strolling through the fields, we tasted the 2010 red, which was herbal and earthy. With the dry breeze blowing through the trees, and hot sun blazing on the grapes, the sensory experience is impossible to re-create. But we came close, drinking this wine once more, in Paris, in winter.
