Domaine Tempier Bandol "Cabassaou" 2021

Domaine Tempier Bandol
  • $ 175.00

95% Mourvèdre, 4% Syrah, 1% Cinsault

Vines are 50+ years in clay and limestone soil.

The three single-vineyards of Domaine Tempier are: La Migoua, La Tourtine, and Cabassaou. All are made up of clay and limestone, but there are variations in each. Cabassaou sits lower on the hillside; it is protected from the strength of the Mistral, enjoying temperate breezes and maximum sunshine. There is ripeness, density and power in these wines.

All grapes are harvested by hand. After de-stemming, grapes are fermented with natural yeast and vinified for 2 to 3 weeks in stainless steel. After maceration is finished and must is pressed, the wine is moved to oak foudres for malolactic fermentation. Aged in oak foudres (25 to 50 hl) for 18 to 20 months. Bottled unfined and unfiltered.
