Sainte Anne is a family run estate located on the Bandol appellation, in the heart of Provence. Our vineyard benefits from a complex soil composition (dry limestone mixed with white sand allowing a very deep drainage) and a specifie micro-climate with cool nights allowing the local variety, Mourvèdre, to reach perfect ripeness.


The growing season sees striking heat in summer, heavy rain in fall, powerful winds (Mistral) and a strong maritime influence.
This brings all necessary elements for our grapes to offer the best expression of our terroir.

Grapes are vinified in white, rosé and red wines. The necessary 18 months of wood ageing (50 hl large oak tanks) brings silky and smooth tannins to our red wines.

“Or Ste Anne, as it says on the label. Mourvèdre from Bandol (and elsewhere) can often come over as being bretty and overtly meaty, and sometimes it is, and sometimes it isn’t. All I like to do, is form an opinion of what’s in the glass, and how it tastes, and then work out whether I like it. This is a bit of a natty producer, using minimal SO2 at bottling. Vines are over 45 years old.

Well there’s no doubt it’s from Bandol. It’s all meat, rolled in earth, and coated with perfumed scrub herbs. It has perfume and wildness, and speaks of place very clearly. Blackcurrant and black olives, wide feeling silty tannin, still carries some freshness and energy, but has a lovely sense of maturing decay, leather and old tobacco and the like. Finish is meaty and slightly medicinal, but long. Like this, but it’s what you might call an ‘aficionados wine’.” – 93 Points, Gary Walsh, The Wine Front.
