Domaines Bunan

Any wine lover at large in Bandol for any length of time will soon encounter the vinous output of Domaines Bunan who are amongst the leading lights of the appellation. Brothers Paul and Pierre Bunan relocated here after Algerian indepence in 1961 and bought the quintessential Provençal vineyard of Moulin de Costes which enjoys a breath-taking panoramic vista of vines, olive groves and hill-top villages overlooking the Mediterranean coast. The brothers subsequently expanded, acquiring neighbouring Mas and Château de la Rouvière and taking over the running of Domaine Bélouvé. These estates are known collectively as Domaines Bunan. They soon carved out a reputation for producing characterful wines with a strong sense of terroir. Nowadays they are assisted by their children making this a thriving, family-run concern. The Bunan family produce delicious, aromatic, dry white and rosé wines together with dense, dark, spicy Mourvédre based reds which are approachable from release but can age well for at least a decade.
