BACKGROUND: Throughout the ages, the lords of the medieval Chateau of Le
Castellet kept their table supplied with wines from the same
legendary terraces which are now known as Moulin des
Costes, named for the 18th century Provençal manor house
which still overlooks the property. In 1961, brothers Paul and
Pierre Bunan purchased this vineyard in the hills above the
port of Bandol. The vineyard area is a single plot of 14.56
hectares in the area around the medieval village of Le Castellet. Its subsoil is composed of limestone, sandstone and marl.
Over time they have renewed the vineyards, planting the classic Bandol varietals Mourvèdre, Grenache and Cinsault, but
many old Mourvèdre vines still remain. Their wines enjoy a
great reputation among the Mediterranean resort towns from
Marseille to Nice, as well as a healthy export market. The
wines of the Bunan domains are farmed organically.
