Great wine is said to have the power to transport us to a particular place. With this single-vineyard Bandol, we are brought to an isolated Provençal hillside overlooking a landscape of vines and small old villages with the Mediterranean off in the distance. The sounds of the chirping cigales is complemented by the gentle rustling of pines in the wind, a steady breeze that carries with it the perfume of the aromatic garrigue growing rampant in the dusty clay. At the domaine's highest-elevation site, Mourvèdre's might is gently enveloped by Grenache and Cinsault to yield a Bandol of great finesse. Its subtlety and elegance are traits that will be emphasized as it evolves over time.

Young or old, this is a truly majestic wine, timeless evidence of the ideal marriage between the Mourvèdre grape and this special terroir. It is only fair to serve it alongside a dish that is equally rustic, soulful, and genuinely Provençal as this Bandol rouge. At Tempier, you might find a rabbit stew simmering over a low flame or a leg of lamb cooking slowly over hot coals. Generous use of garlic and rosemary will ensure a correct experience, bringing you as close to Bandol as possible without actually setting foot in the vineyards.
