Expert Reviews

97 Points - Decanter Asia Wine Awards 2018Delicious and long, with upfront, instantly attractive aromas of crushed raspberries, citrus, green bell pepper and chalk. Super-fresh palate, revealing further mineral lines, fabulous fruit persistence and finally a pleasing pinch of bitterness at the end.

Pale, tones of salmon pink. An expressive bouquet, beginning with fruity notes, and finishing with floral tones. A rounded, ample body with a bright finish and an aftertaste of exotic fruit.

Who made it?

Bastide de la Ciselette was founded in 2010 by Robert de Salvo. Born to generations of wine-growers, Robert gained experience in the local wine-grower’s cooperative before purchasing prime Bandol land with the goal of making his own wines. The winery began with the construction of a half-buried cellar, and success came quickly: his very first vintage was awarded a prize at the prestigious Concours Générale Agricole de Paris (Paris General Agricultural Show). Year after year, the Ciselette’s wines have gained both technical and commercial acclaim, and the winery’s sales have grown along with its reputation. Driven by a constant desire to develop and supported by his clients, Robert de Salvo has continued to invest in the vineyard in order to increase the production volume of the cellar and fermenting vats. 2015 was a watershed year for the winery. Bastide de la Ciselette acquired new parcels of land and built a storage hangar in order to optimize logistics and shipping. Thanks to the new hangar, domestic and international orders, which have grown steadily since the winery was founded, can now be handled even more quickly than in previous years. During the summer 2019, the wine estate received the label "Haute Valeur Environnementale” (high environmental value).

A really great wine deal must must be accompanied by great value. There is nothing better than getting an incredible bottle of wine for a fraction of what similar quality wines sell for. My recommendations gives you the very best "Value for money" wines at different pricepoints.
