The vineyard of La Migoua lies high up on a ridge at about a thousand feet altitude. The wine contains between 50% to 60% Mourvedre. Cinsault figures importantly in the blend, giving the wine a distinct gaminess. Grenache and Syrah make up the balance. Vines average over 30 years old. Very enticing sweet black fruit flavors, lush and soft on the palate. La Migoua offers wild and extremely complex flavors, with a variety of scents and a fine balance that guarantees aging.

"The 2011 Bandol La Migoua, which has the most Grenache of any of the cuvees, comes from red and blue clay soils and the highest plots on the estate. Comprised of 50% Mourvedre, 26% Cinsault, 20% Grenache and the balance Syrah, it too shows the vintage character with forward, supple and polished aromas and flavors of sweet blackberry, currants, spice and underbrush all emerging from the glass. Medium-bodied, beautifully textured and with fine tannin on the finish, it will evolve at a faster rate than most vintages of this cuvee, yet still dish out gobs of pleasure over the coming decade or more." 92/100 Jeb Dunnuck, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

"Dark, taut and winey, with steeped currant, blackberry coulis and macerated black cherry fruit, lined with singed alder, tobacco, warm stone and licorice root notes. The long finish features a well- buried iron spine. Mourvèdre, Cinsault, Grenache and Syrah. Best from 2016 through 2028." 93/100 Wine Spectator Insider
