That's quite a strong statement. Isn't Bandol in Provence?
Trevallon is quite huge and quite expensive for some time, Mas de Gourgonnier has been catching press for some time, and quite popular at Fish, Chateau Simone in Palette has been getting prestige for some time, and so many other "smaller" names, but you're closer to the action than we are.. Don't you frequent that Southern Wine shop? La Derniere Goutte also has a few..
FWIW, to my palate Provence is more promising than the Languedoc because the elevation and cooler temperatures ease off the gobbiness that is so dangerous in points South of Montelimar..
Anyway, glad to hear you're enjoying the wines.
