Domaine Tempier Bandol Cuvée Spéciale 1994

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

This really stinks with fetid game notes dominating before adding a light confiture of raspberry and tomato. Lovely resolved medium bodied wine in the mouth with good balance and moderately rich flavors of earth, leather, and gentle red fruits. Grew a bit longer and more linear with air and worked well with the simple food but ultimately remains a simple, rustic wine with good, very savory complexity. 2008-2011
