Certainly the best known Bandol estate and the Cuvee Classique is the emblematic red offering. Rich and full bodied, with layers of dark fruit, mixed spices, lavender and Mediterranean herbs. So much detail and interest with flecks of blue and red fruits, mixed with campfire and Serrano. The tannins are incredibly complex, sleek and finishing with fine coffee grounds grip. Wonderful and evocative. Waters Wine Co
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.
