Var is the southern French region best known for its Bandol and Côtes de Provence AOCs. Domaine la Gayolle began in 1855 and today, seventh generation winemaker Nicolas Paul builds upon ancestral knowledge using a mixture of old and new techniques. The result is Les Platanes, a fabulous blend of Cinsault and Cabernet Sauvignon farmed using sustainable methods. Red currant and strawberry on the nose and mouth-watering pomelo on the palate. Perfect as an aperitif with starters and you can also pair it with grilled meat and salad at your next BBQ party.
