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!

An intense fruit and floral nose make this an attractive rose.The palate is rounded and full with fruity of peach and pomegranate, followed by delicate spice notes and a pleasant freshness created by acidic balance .

A Proprietary Blend wine from Provence in France. 2012 Domaine Tempier Bandol Rose 750ml


Winemaker's Notes:

"When Lucie “Lulu” Tempier married Lucien Peyraud in 1936, her father gave them Domaine Tempier, an active farm that had been in the family since 1834, near Le Plan du Castellet, just outside the Mediterranean seaport village of Bandol. Tasting a pre-phylloxera bottle of Domaine Tempier Bandol (a wedding gift from his father-in-law) inspired Lucien to research the terroir of Bandol extensively. Up until that point, old vineyards planted with Mourvèdre had been systematically replanted to higher-yielding varietals. However, more research not only showed its historical roots to the area, but the grape proved to be more resistant to oxidation, producing wines with great aging potential. By 1941, with the assistance of neighboring vignerons, Lucien worked with the I.N.A.O. (Institut National des Appellations d’Origines) to establish Bandol as its own A.O.C. Needless to say, large-scale replanting of Mourvèdre ensued, and Bandol now requires a fifty percent minimum in all reds. Lucien will forever be celebrated as the Godfather of Bandol, but also as the man who revived Mourvèdre to its former glory. Raising deep and structured wines of such refinement and longevity has made Domaine Tempier truly a grand cru de Provence." -Importer
