- Purchased by brothers Louis and Michel Bronzo in the 1970's, La Bastide Blanche was positioned to to produce red wines in the style of the southern Rhone big boys. While their rouge is still crucial, it's the rosé that everybody clamors for these days. Utilizing strict organic viticulture, their Mourvedre goes straight to press, while the supporting grapes see a day of skin contact. Somehow, both reserved and flirty.
