Domaine Tempier - Bandol Classique 2014 - Provence, France


Mourvèdre, Grenache, Cinsault, Carignan

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'. 

Tempier's 'Classique' is a blend of grapes harvested across all three of their parcels. The principal grape, Mourvèdre, was brought to the south of France by the Phoenicians around 500BC and is the principal black grape of the region, making up a minimum of 50% of any red wine from Bandol. It is this grape that gives the wine its distinctly rustic edge that has given the region its cult following. 

Tasting notes: Ripe blackberry, plum, pepper, violets, smoke, leather and meat. Full-bodied with firm tannins that will benefit from decanting. 

Food pairing: The perfect pairing for rich, fatty dishes like our Venison ragu
