2016 Bandol Cuvée Tourtine, Domaine Tempier

La Tourtine 2016 is a truly fine example of Tempier’s distinctive terroirs. This vineyard bathes in light from sunrise to sunset, and the sandstone and marly soils lock in enough water reserves to keep these deep-rooted old vines happy. Mourvèdre makes up 85% of the blend, and this 2016 is a superb example of its ability to deliver power and elegance.

2016 Bandol Cuvée Tourtine, Domaine Tempier
Domaine Tempier

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.
