Well folks do I have a treat for you this month. On a side note, I'm sitting outside in my inner front courtyard and man do I need to clean the roof and gutters! Pine needs are collection like my roof is going all natural...kinda like this little rosé...naturally awesome!Here are the notes from Anthony Lynch-They say great wine is evocative of place. With Tempier rosé, all it takes is one sniff to be carried back to Provence, conceiving a dreamy fantasy of sunshine and ice-cold pink wine. Suddenly we are in the shade of a massive umbrella pine tree at Domaine Tempier, refreshed by a soothing breeze and generous sips of rosé. The cigales chirp buzzingly in the background, while the sound of laughter complements their constant hum. Your glass of Bandol, evocative of rosemary, ripe peaches, and citrus, is the perfect elixir to wash down the assortment of snacks that has spontaneously materialized: garlic-rubbed toasts with cured anchovies, olives marinated in herb-infused oil, and slices of salty saucisson. This is what Tempier rosé is all about—celebration, gaiety, and delicious simplicity.I was able to crack a bottle and my only bottle of 2020 rosé a week or so ago while getting eaten alive by mosquitoes. I grilled up some filets and steamed up some brown rice while I was letting the bugs suck my blood out. Funny thing is...while the DDT I sprayed on me was doing its job...I didn't mind the buzzing sounds of bugs buzzing my ears as the rosé was doing it's job.The major benefit of being part of the rosé club is when I can secure and hold bottles like this for you all. I mean let's face it...any wine shop that doesn't secure and hold one of the most sought after rosé in the world for the club that is all about rosé, is just stupid. Enjoy this with whatever you want or hold it for a few years. I'm glad I opened it as it was great and pleasure to drink out in the woods.Santo

2018 & 2019 ReleaseAlthough this year has seemed to be a total shit-show, there are some things we can look forward to...like the release of the current vintages from Domaine Tempier. This year Tempier lost its jewel of the estate, Lulu. She passed away this year at the young age of 102 and although she is gone, she will never be forgotten. From her greeting guest, making dinner and her amazing cook books...her and her late husband Lucien worked Domaine Tempier into what it is today...the most magical place in Provence. Well for me that is.Here are the current releases from Tempier. Please remember that if you want any of these wines...get them now as we tend to sell out pretty fast and I don't want to hear about how you didn't know they came in.
We can either ship the wines out to you or you can swing by the shop and pick them up. Wines will arrive in the shop on Wednesday the 9th of December.
Hope you're ready for these.
