Located in Bandol, to the east of Provonce, Domaine Terrebrune’s vines are planted on terraces with climb the Gros Cerveau mountain. The estate’s name perhaps derives from the brown clay and marl which dominate the soil. The bedrock is solid limestone. The wines are classically Bandol and reliably pleasing. The white wine is a blend of Clairette, Ugni Blanc and Bourboulenc, with floral aromas, hints of nougat, white pepper and ripe peach. The palate is equally complex, with all the flavours happily converging on an impressive finish, which is both refreshing and profound.
