Domaine Ray Jane, of the the ancient Provençal comune of Le Castellet, has been in the Constant family since the year 1288 (not a typo). Since 2002, Alain and Anne Constant run the winery along with their two sons Julien and Vincent. They have 30 hectares of vines on clay and limestone soil, consisting mainly of mourvèdre, in the Bandol appellation. One third of their vineyards are centenarian vines planted on restanques, massive Roman stone terraces built to prevent hillside erosion. Using modern organic techniques, the Constant family makes a classical array of the region's wines "with the utmost respect for tradition and nature, as our ancestors did before us." This IGP bottling is declassified Bandol, with an atypically higher percentage of carignan (70%), from 40-60 year old vines fermented whole cluster for 4 or 5 weeks, before nearly two years of aging in neutral oak barrels.
