Domaine Tempier - Bandol Blanc 2015 - Provence, France

£43.00

Clairette, Ugni Blanc, Bourboulenc, Marsanne

The sun-scorched coast of Provence is best known for Holloway celebrities investing in vanity Châteaux, but it is also home to Bandol, a tiny group of vineyards that hug the rugged, coastline. Tempier had been in family hands for a century when Lucien Peyraud inherited the Domaine. He campaigned to have his and his neighbour's vineyards recognised as one of France's first appellations: a goal that he achieved in 1941, transforming the fortunes of his winery and the region. For this achievement, he has become known as the 'Grandfather of Bandol'. 

The appellation is best known for its red and rosé wines, but Tempier also produces exceedingly age-worthy whites. The main component in the blend is Clairette, a grape which thrives in the heat of the south of France. It provides much of the wine's distinctive waxy texture while grapes like Ugni Blanc balance the wine with acidity. 

Tasting notes: Ripe citrus, white peach, cloves and honey. Full-bodied with a rich, waxy texture. Benefits from decanting. 

Food pairing: Try with similarly rich food such as washed-rind cheeses like Carré du Vinage
