A deep, ruby colour, aromas of dark fruit, intense smooth tannins. Domaine Tempier's 2014 is already showing tertiary aromas of leather and forest-floor but has at least ten more years ahead. The wine is traditionally made without using herbicides, chemical fungicides. Low yields for full potential. Hand harvested, carried in small bins, hand selected grapes. Fermented with natural yeast, aged 18-20 months in large oak casks and bottled without fining or filtering.
This is such a wonderful, classic Bandol with a warm, rustic character that we would have every vintage in our cellars.
