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.
Located on the Beausset Vieux hillside, at an altitude of 300 meters, La Migoua consists of scattered parcels circled by wild scrubland. An extraordinary geological accident formed very complex soil. A sheet of rock was added to a geological reversal with older underground rock layers of limestone, dolomite and dedo-lomite. The rugged relief provides different exposure to the sun (east, west and south), generally less affected by the Mistral, a strong northwesterly wind. The select La Migoua cuvée expresses all the specificity of this 11-hectare site.
