Domaine Tempier Bandol Rose 2019
When Lucie “Lulu” Tempier married Lucien Peyraud in 1936, her father gave them Domaine Tempier, an active farm just outside the Mediterranean village of Bandol. The celebrity of Domaine Tempier lies deep in the soils of the Bandol appellation and the long-lived Mourvedre grape. Variations of clay and limestone between the vineyards produce undeniably world class wine. This refreshing, age-worthy rosé - once praised by Robert Parker as the greatest in the world - is 50% Mourvedre with equal parts Grenache and Cinsault, and stands as a benchmark of Provencal wine.
