Domaine du Gros' Noré
View All Wines
Alain Pascal farms 16 hectares of vines in Bandol, regarded as Provence’s ‘grand cru’ region, where altitude and proximity to the Mediterranean give his wines impressive balance. The domaine is named for his father, “Fat (Ho)Noré”, who grew grapes here for many years, selling the bulk of his crop to top local producers, and only making wine for his personal consumption. After Noré died, Alain turned producer and, since the first vintage in 1997, is now regarded as one of the region’s finest. The wines are blends based on the powerful Mourvèdre grape: rich, spicy and impressively ageworthy.
