2009 Bandol Cuvée Cabassaou, Domaine Tempier
Cabassaou means “escarpment” and is made from the vines grown on the lower, steeper slopes of the Tourtine vineyard. 95% Mourvèdre, it is dark and inky in the glass. The nose is of herbaceous blackberry fruit with a touch of a spice. On the palate, this is full-bodied and incredibly rich, but with a lightness of touch and a dart of cranberry acidity. The tannins are structural, but very fine – this is a serious wine with a serious future.
