Etiquette Bandol Tempier Famille Peyraud 2006

Information on Bandol Tempier Famille Peyraud

Adjoining a vast amphitheatre of hills, the Bandol area extends over eight communes in the Toulon region. A hot maritime climate combined with skeletal limestone soil creates ideal conditions for Mourvdre (used to make red and ros wines, which account for most of the production). One of the oldest properties in the Bandol appellation (the vines were already under production in the reign of Louis XV), Domaine de Tempier owes its success to Lonie Tempier, who replanted the vines at the end of the 19th century after the phylloxera crisis. The property's excellent reputation has been upheld by the Peyraud family since 1940. It currently has 30 hectares of vines spread over the three communes of le Castellet, Le Beausset and La Cadire, and produces wines exclusively in the Bandol appellation, the majority of which are red, with one third ros and a small quantity of white. Distinguished and powerful, the red wines can be aged in the cellar for many years. A skilful blend of the various terroirs that make up the vineyard, the red "Cuve Classique" is made from 70 to 75% Mourvdre, depending on the vintage, combined with Grenache and Cinsault and just a hint (3%) of Vieux Carignan. This is a fruity, balanced wine that is a pleasure to drink after two or three years but, with a little more time, develops a delightful bouquet of tertiary aromas (leather, game, undergrowth). It has sufficient structure to age for 15 years or more. Read more
