Description

Tempier's 2016 Bandol Cuvee Classique was the only red I had a chance to taste from this historic domaine. A Mourvèdre-dominated wine (70% to 75%, depending on the vintage) blended from several vineyards and aged in foudres, it shows some leathery scents alongside vibrant purple fruit. In the mouth, it's medium to full-bodied, marked by almost painful acids, while the tannins are ripe and supple. I'd suggest decanting it a couple of hours ahead of serving if you decide to broach a bottle in the near term.

Domaine Tempier was already in existence during the reign of Louis XV (1715-1774) and since that time it has continued to grow and evolve under the guidance of the Tempier and Peyraud families. Today it consists of 38 hectares spread over several vineyard parcels, all of which are located in the heart of Bandol. In 2000 François and Jean-Marie Peyraud ceded control of day to day operations of the estate to Daniel Ravier, a young agricultural engineer from Savoie. Since taking over, Daniel has upheld the estates philosophy by continuing to champion wines based on Mourvèdre and by promoting one of the unique features of the estate. Namely, its ability to produce single vineyard wines that showcase the individual terroirs of Bandol. All the vineyards are carefully maintained without chemical fertilizers or herbicides and recent investments has allowed for the renovation of the cellar, the replacement of barrels and the installation of a new vinification system. These changes have permitted Daniel to improve the quality of the wines while ensuring that the estate's legacy of producing powerful, full bodied wines that are capable of ageing for many years continues uninterrupted.
