This white Bandol is a lesson in elegance and finesse, from one of the stand-out domaines in the Bandol appellation. More info

This white Bandol may represent an infinitesimal part of the domaine’s production (3%), but its varietal blend is grown on some of the best terroirs in the appellation. The fruit matures slowly on the vine thanks to limited sun exposure. After harvesting it is crushed, de-stemmed and undergoes cold skin-contact maceration before maturing in wood for between 8–10 months. The resulting wine is incredibly fresh with a clear golden hue, offering delicate aromas of flowers and stoned fruit. A lesson in elegance and finesse.

Bandol Domaine Tempier Famille Peyraud serve at a temperature of 12°C. It will pair perfectly with the following dishes: Risotto aux asperges et morilles, Daurade royale en papillottes, Chèvre.

Information about domain Tempier

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 Mourvèdre (used to make red and rosé 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 Léonie 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 Cadière, and produces wines exclusively in the Bandol appellation, the majority of which are red, with one third rosé and a small quantity of white.
