Over 100 bottles of Bandol wine were placed under the sea for a year with one goal in mind: observing the ageing of wine.
The bottles of white, rosé and red wine were left 40m under the surface of the Mediterranean for 12 months. Today, divers collected carefully their loot. After 3 hours, all bottles were rescued and ready for tasting.
And the proud winemakers are convinced of the success of their experiment after tasting the reds, whites and rosés. Every wine was compared with a same bottle kept in a cellar for 12 months. And after being compared, most connoisseurs said that they preferred the underwater variety.
