2017 Bandol Rouge, Cuvée Antoinette, Domaine du Gros' Noré

Alain’s top wine, the Cuvée Antoinette in 2017 is outstanding. Notes of herbs, dark berries and tapenade swirl from the glass, with a poise and energy that draws you in. The finish is long and rich, but with beautiful detailing, too. Impressive.

2017 Bandol Rouge, Cuvée Antoinette, Domaine du Gros' Noré
Domaine du Gros' Noré

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.
