  • Terroir
    Moulin des Costes is the flagship of Domaines Bunan and offers wines with distinctive characters that reflect the traditions of Bandol.

    In 1961, the year it was purchased, the domaine was partially replanted in line with the traditional norms of the “Bandol“ appellation which paved the way for a promising future for two men, Pierre and Paul.

    The terraced vines of the Moulin des Costes offer views of the Mediterranean sea, typical of the appellation, and are now planted with 45 year old Mourvèdre and Grenache vines.

    Triassic and clay-limestone basement

    Yield: 30 hl per hectare

  • Vinification and maturation
    Wine made from organically cultivated grapes, manual harvests (in accordance with the regulations of the Bandol appellation).
  • Features
    This wine offers a lovely combination of zip and richness, with creamy edges around a core of delicious white cherry and white peach flavors, all offset by a pure beam of minerality that pierces through from start to finish.
  • Food Pairings
    Bouillabaisse fish stew, Provencal dishes.
  • Medals / Press reviews
    Gold medal Concours Général Agricole de Paris 2019
