The opinion of the sommelier

This month, I am happy to make you taste a wine from Bandol, one of my favourite appellation. Jean Luc Dumoutier elaborates a unique cuvee with an extraordinary aromatic palette. A powerful wine that shows aromas of Morello cherry, prune, tobacco and leather. The finish is spicy with a hint of thyme. In the mouth, all the flavours are structured by firm tannins. 

 

Terroir

Facing south, the vineyards receive around 3000 hours of sunlight a year. The Mediterranean Sea protects the vineyard from too big gaps of temperature. Whereas in the height, hills are blocking the cold wind coming from the North. The soil is composed of clay and limestone with marl. Despite of a poor ground with limited yield, this soil is really favourable to the growing of vine and produces grapes with concentrated aromas.

lecepage Grape variety

This cuvee is mainly elaborated with Mourvedre. This variety has small grape with a dense skin which gives to the wine a great tannic structure with a long ageing potential. This grape provides all the personality and uniqueness of Bandol wines. Gather with Grenache, Carignan and Cinsault, the structur is more complex with a wider aromatic range.

lemillesime Vintage

The growth of 2014 vintage started really well thanks to a rainy winter. This rain refilled the phreatic zone and provided the water needed during the warm and dry spring. The grapes harvest took place in perfect condition. This vintage is really appreciated for its structure and its ripeness. 

lerecoltant A winemaker, a family

Domaine de l’Olivette has been owned by the same family for more than 200 years. At the beginning it was just a farm where polyculture was made : wheat, vines, vegetables and obviously olive trees, which gave their name to the estate. In 1930, the family decided to focus on winemaking, and especially from 1941 when the Bandol Appellation was created. They therefore were among the first estates to produce Bandol wines. Nowadays Jean-Luc and Elisabeth Dumoutier are the fourth generation of winemakers.
