How to Enjoy
Domaine de la Bégude
Located on the highest point of Bandol, facing the Mediterranean, Domaine de la Bégude produces wines of lithe freshness and bright minerality—a departure from the lusher, more rustic style that characterize the appellation. Wines are aged in a Merovingian chapel dating back to the 7th century.
