2009 Galantin "Longue Garde" Bandol Rouge, 750ml

Availability: In stock (1)

Wines from the Bandol region in Southeast France are an ancient breed; the slopes were first planted by Phocaean Greeks in the 6000s BCE.  This small Domaine is run now run by the second generation of wine-makers on the property:  daughter of original owner Achille, Celine Pascale.

From the importer's mouth (VOS):

Made only in special vintages, this wine is made for "long aging" as the name implies. It is a huge wine with depth and complexity, made from the oldest parcels on the property and gets a longer cuvaison than the regular cuvée. Céline holds the Longue Garde back for at least 5 years before release so the wine is approachable, sometimes for much longer.
