DOMAINE DES BORMETTES

Domaine des Bormettes, teeming with history, bears witness to the viticultural development of the Var coastline, which became the well-known region of La Londe.

Location
The land of Domaine des Bormettes hosted some of the first Roman vineyards, but it was the Carthusian monks of the 14th century who developed its signature identity.
The Domain’s location certainly is privileged: it is near the sea but set back on the hillsides. The lower lands which extend to the beach were designated for farming use only. This “terroir” is unic. The land holds very stony soil, composed of shale and quartz. This soil easily drains and has a low density of organic matter, making it naturally primed for vineyards and olive groves.
Today, the Terroir de La Londe is recognized as the heart of the Côtes de Provence. Not only for its soil, the crystalline and limestone composition which is a trademark of Provence, but also for its climate, dry and temperate, with maritime influences and bay air currents, between the massif des Maures and the Iles d’Or.
At the heart of this land, specialists defined three zones of maturity. The youngest vineyards, having “les pieds dans l’eau” are refreshed by the Mediterranean sea, the oldest ones on the Maures foothills have due south exposure a few kilometers inland; and the middle land which characterizes the Domaine.



Le vignoble du Château des Bormettes s'étend sur 70 hectares de vignes en coteaux face à la Méditerranée, au sein d'une nature préservée de 140 hectares de maquis et de forêt.

Son coeur bat autour du Pic Saint-Martin, de son chêne liège millénaire, et de sa cave située sous la Chartreuse.

Le sol très caillouteux, de schistes et de quartz, donne tout son caractère au vin. A chaque replantation, il est travaillé patiemment afin d'augmenter la profondeur colonisable par les racines,aidant la vigne à résister aux sécheresses extrêmes sans avoir recours à l'irrigation.

On y cultive avec passion les cépages Grenache, Syrah, Cinsault, Rolle, Mourvèdre et Cabernet-Sauvignon, bientôt rejoints par le Carignan, la Clairette et d'autres encore, dans un vignoble en plein renouveau.
