The straight 2013 Bandol Cuvee Classique from Tempier is a winner. Made from 74% Mourvèdre, 14% Grenache, 9% Cinsault, 3% Carignan and a splash of Syrah, this beauty is loaded with wild, gamey notes of blackberries, raspberries, wild herbs, olive and underbrush. Medium-bodied, silky and polished, with terrific purity of fruit, it’s ideal for drinking over the coming 7-8 years, and I’m sure will keep for longer.

Domaine Tempier

Domaine Tempier is an old family estate, owned by the Peyrauds since Lucien Peyraud married Lucie Tempier in 1936. The family was largely instrumental in getting the appellation of Bandol established in 1941. The reds are the quintessential expression of Mourvèdre, grown on terraced vineyards on steep hills around the 'plan du Castellet'.

Traditional vinification using indigenous yeasts, the wines are aged in a variety of different sized oak (25 to 75hl) for between 18 and 20 months. These are wines which are capable of long ageing, but even young they have a finesse of fruit and earthy flavour, coupled with fine-grained tannins, which lift them above the generality of Provençal reds.
