The estate

An enchanting place of untamed beauty

Château Angueiroun et la baie de Bormes les Mimosas

Château Angueiroun is 125 hectares of rolling land by the sea – including 37 hectares of Côtes de Provence AOP vines – studded with hills, lakes and rivers looking out southwards to the Bay of Bormes-les-Mimosas, which has just joined the exclusive club of the ‘most beautiful bays in the world’.

The estate is set in a cirque overlooking the sea, nestled among the shrubland, a delightful pocket of greenery in the garden of Provence where the scents of rosemary, lavender, thyme, mimosa, pine, heather, eucalyptus, rockrose, arbutus and cork oak linger in the air.

It’s a wild and unspoilt place, crisscrossed with footpaths we can’t wait for you to discover. Along the way, enjoy breathtaking views of the bay, the Îles d’Or – Levant, Port-Cros and Porquerolles –, Brégançon Fort and Cap Bénat.

The vines are planted on slopes facing the rising sun and the Bay of Bormes-les-Mimosas and Lavandou, on schist soil rich in mica, quartz and sandy clay.

The landscape changes colour along with the immutable changing of the seasons. Bronze and tawny after the Indian summer, speckled with bright golden patches of mimosa and broom in winter, it returns to all shades of green in spring before the glory of summer, sun-gorged grapes and the September harvest, an annual celebration of time-honoured know-how.

This jewel of Provence owes its rich resources to water, from the streams and rivers that feed several lakes and sustain the stunning landscape monopolised by the green shrubland, woods and vines and the red earth, dotted here and there with pools of azure blue.

Formerly a hunting reserve, the wine estate was established in 1931. Acquired in 1998 by Éric Dumon, the winery has since been extended and restructured, with particular attention given to the quality of the grapes and the preservation of the agricultural land. The grape varieties grown within the Côtes de Provence protected designation of origin (AOP) – Grenache, Tibouren, Cinsault, Rolle, Ugni blanc, Sémillon, Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon, Mourvèdre, Caladoc and Carignan – are elevated to exceptional levels of expression.

Through the alchemy of blending, they produce powerful, delicate and distinctive wines, embodying the wild and enchanting terroir, which is blessed with over 3,000 hours of sunshine a year.
