Domaine Tempier Bandol Cuvée Spéciale 2006

Member Review by dynowine:

Fruit is well-integrated with notes of mineral and herb, mild not intense, has medium plus body, strong, smooth and round in the mouth with medium tannins and medium plus acid. Would pair well with roasted vegetables or meats. Finish has lingering fruit, tannins with hints of nuts and minerals. Ruby color. Nose of mild, sweet red fruit (cherries or raspberries).

The "La Migoua" vineyard site is planted mostly with the Mourvèdre grape variety. As expected, this is a full-bodied red wine that's plump with dark berries and spice. Domaine Tempier Bandols are always age-worthy.

This beautiful Provençal offering is reminiscent of sun-ripened dark fruit and the spice of garrigue. The wine is 75% Mourvèdre, blended with Grenache, Cinsault, and Carignan. Though a touch austere in its youth, this will flesh out beautifully over the next couple years. Drink it with wild boar.
