Tempier has stood as a preeminent domaine of Provence for decades. Its wines have put the small appellation of Bandol on the fine wine map, and are testament to the fact there is much more to Provence’s vinous offering than rosé to enjoy. Talented winemaker Daniel Ravier makes superb wines for the Peyraud family from Mourvèdre, with some Syrah, Grenache, Carignan and Cinsault. Their single vineyard wines are some of the greatest expressions of terroir in the fine wine canon, and have decades-long ageing potential. The estate enjoys a cult-like following, particularly in the US.
