Domaine de la Ribotte

Bandol, France

The Domaine de la Ribotte is a family affair. Maurice Desblache’s grandfather bought the domaine which is now run by Maurice’s wife Laurence, the first female winemaker in Bandol, and their son Nicolas.

I came across their rosé while judging gold medal winners at the Decanter World Wine Awards. When we traced the family we were surprised to...

Domaine de la Ribotte, Bandol Rouge, 2014

Red Bandol is usually backward, but this is already expressive, showing a nose of Asian spice on black fruit; with impressive, inky concentration, well-covered tannin and attractive savoury elements. A traditionally framed example, perfect to accompany robust meat dishes like venison or a local daube provençale. Now-2024

Bandol is an unusual appellation in the south as both rosés and reds need to be based on at least 50% Mourvèdre. This grape, by repute, likes to have its feet in water and its head in the sun - so it thrives on the moisture retentive clay soils and the long hours of sunshine in Bandol.

With our enthusiasm for the Desblache family's exquisite rosé, we sometimes forget their classic and robust red Bandol. Based on Mourvèdre, this is a terrific wine for hearty food, and can be kept for several years.

Just wanted to say thank you so much for sending my order of 2 x Domaine Begude Rosé to my son and daughter-in-law - I couldn't believe that they received it within a day of my placing the order with you. That is IMPRESSIVE, especially given the current trying times.
