Domaine Tempier can be considered one of France’s great estates. It is situated in France’s Bandol region and the family behind the operation is responsible for putting the province on the wine map, showing the world how great Mourvèdre-based wines can be.
At Domaine Tempier grapes from our different vineyards are skillfully blended to create this wine, made up of between 70 and 75% Mourvedre (depending on the year) combined with Grenache, Cinsault and a hint (2%) of old Carignan. This fruity, well balanced wine can be enjoyed after 3 or 4 years, but develops extremely pleasant tertiary aromas (leather, animal and undergrowth) with further ageing. The wine’s balance gives it an ageing potential of 15 years or more.
