Another polished, balanced and even elegant wine from Domain Tempier is the 2013 Bandol Tourtine (85% Mourvèdre, 10% Grenache and 5% Cinsault). This is medium-bodied, nicely concentrated and lively, with lots of wild herbs, sappy rosemary, spring flowers, and both red and black fruits. It shows the more elegant, cooler style of the vintage, yet still offers beautiful texture and length. Drink it anytime over the coming decade.

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.
