is currently backordered. You may still purchase it now but we won't be able to ship it until it becomes available again.
Varieties: Ugni Blanc 30%, Clairette 30%, Marsanne 30%, Sauvignon Blanc 10%
Estate: In the far west of the Côtes de Provence's appellation, Chateau Barbanau has 20 hectares of vineyards on a 360 meters high hill, surrounded by a huge white cliff. The micro climate is very specific.
Syrah, Grenache, Cinsault, Mourvèdre and Rolle varieties grow here and produce the best grapes. Between each parcel, different trees are growing, like cypress, olive, cherry, apple, almond trees, and each parcel gets the name of the tree that grows there-or from the animals who like roaming around and eating the grapes! So, the parcels go under names like Cherry Tree's Syrah, Apple Tree's Cabernet, and Wild Boar's Rolle...
Sophie and Didier have a passion for nature and wildlife, spending many holidays in the wilds of Africa. That passion led towards the production of organic wines, with a natural environment prevailing on the land. They stopped using any pesticide or fungicide in 1995 and from the 2005 vintage, have been recognised as a organic certified producer.
Tasting Notes: With a nose full of white flowers, citrus and exotic fruits, this great structured and balanced provencal wine is dry, characterful, savoury and perfect with all manner of seafood.
