Château de Roquefort, winery Côtes-de-Provence | BKWine Pick

Behind Bandol and Cassis, almost in the mountains, you find this producer where the vines grow on red clay soil mixed with limestone. It is managed with great care by Raimond de Villeneuve. He took over this family estate in 1995 and rapidly changed it to bio-dynamic production. His wines are powerful, full-bodied, with lots of fruit, sometimes a bit rustic. They are often based on Grenache, his favourite grape variety. You can find them at Lafayette Gourmet, bd Haussman, Paris 9e (for example Les Mûrs 2001 for 11.90€).
