Bandol Wine

for this region?


Bandol is the most interesting and quality-oriented appellation in Provence. It is best known for its serious, ageworthy wines made mostly from Mourvedre. In all the world, this is where Mourvedre achieves its loftiest expression. The reds must be aged for at least 18 months in barrel before release, and the best, from the likes of Pradeaux and Tempier, can improve for decades in bottle.

The climate here is Mediterranean, and some rose and white wine is also made to accommodate the heat and the seafood-centric cuisine. The main white varieties are Clairette, Bourboulenc, Ugni Blanc, and Sauvignon Blanc.

  • I'm a big believer in going relatively simple at TG and letting the food be ... that has a lot of acid, a Bandol Rose and have been debating what to do about a red. There's a pretty good Languedoc 100% Syrah on sale in PA that is ready to go and solid. On the other hand I don't think Pinot will have any trouble standing up to smoked poultr Read More

    Day bright. Salmon Pink, with little rim variation. Faint nose of metal, faint citrus, and overripe melon. Palate is a touch of melon, balanced with citrus and acid. Lovely. Drinks too well. Read More

  • Domaine Tempier Bandol Rose 2012


    Ok, maybe I am a little biased because I was there in Bandol when I drank their roses for the first time. I loved all wineries, the views were incredible and people enjoyed talking to us! This bottle in particular, I brought back. It was creamy and elegant with a hint of fruit, but still very dry. I highly recommend it! Read More
