Tempier Bandol la Tourtine 2015

Winemaker's Notes:

80% Mourvèdre, 10% Grenache, 10% Cinsault. The three single-vineyards of Domaine Tempier are: La Migoua, La Tourtine, and Cabassaou. All are made up of clay and limestone, but there are variations in each. La Tourtine sits just above Cabassaou. The soil here is more homogeneous, with rich clay. La Tourtine produces powerful, tannic wines with gorgeous fruit character. Not yet reviewed; 2014 vintage rated 91-93 points by Jeb Dunnuck (Wine Advocate).
