Presentation

The wine
1947. The foreword to this tale was written in 1947, when the highly charismatic Jean Bagnis launched the Estandon wine brand in the southern city of Nice. He had already understood that it is vital to be different when you want to establish a market identity. Thanks to its timeless values of consistent quality and distinctive marketing, Estandon is nowadays generally considered as "the benchmark for Provence-type Rosé wines".
In 2013, In honour of this beautiful story, which has become almost legendary in the Provence region, we decided to elaborate an exceptional wine, a "Cuvée d'exception" marrying refinement and pleasure with the latest know-how of wine-making. By pursuing and celebrating the values of Estandon, this wine is poised to write another chapter of the Legend.
