Crillon le Brave opens a new Bistrot 40K

crillon le braveReboul Wine Cellar

Our good friend and former owner of this house, Robert Reboul, was 100% provençal by birth and by temperament. He had his own olive trees and picked and cured them himself. He had his own vineyards and made wine for his own use and that of his friends. And he made a variety of other native concoctions as well … and it all took place in this marvellous cellar.  His spirit still lives on here today.

When eating in Bistrot 40K, you are welcome to come down into the Reboul cellar to select your own bottle of wine to have with dinner.   The wine selection is true to the spirit of the Bistrot itself with all wines being grown and made within 40 kilometres of Crillon le Brave.  Many of these are very reasonably-priced Ventoux AOC wines that are fresh blends of grenache, syrah and other local cépages that drink well after as little as a year or two in the bottle.

Château Unang, Malemort du Comtat
James and Joanna King are also relatively recent immigrés having left their native Scotland for warmer climates when they bought and restored the beautiful Château Unang.  They gave new life to the château’s wine production in 2003 and their success in local and international markets is noticeable. Using low yields and evolving their entire production over to organic processes, the Kings are making their own mark in the re-named appellation that is Ventoux AOC.
