Domaine Tempier, located in the heart of the Bandol appellation, was established by the Tempier family in 1834. The domaine won its first gold medal in 1885 and is one of the few 19th-century family-run wine estates that has stayed true to its past.

According to historians, Bandol’s first vines were planted around since 600 BC and the Romans exported the local wines from Bandol harbor. On 11 November 1941, Bandol was granted AOC (Appellation d’Origine Controlee) status.

Domaine Tempier’s 38 hectares are spread over several parcels facing the sea on steep, sun-drenched slopes. It is made up of a patchwork of vineyards, the main ones being La Migoua in Le Beausset-Vieux and La Tourtine and Cabassaou in Le Castellet, as well as the house in Le Plan du Castellet. The Mourvedre grape thrives on the Bandol terroir of rocky landscapes and hundred-year-old terraces. It is combined with Grenache to give the wine body and fruit, and with Cinsault which provides refinement and balance. The dark-colored Mourvedre gives the Bandol red wines their structure and elegance as well as their capacity to age well.

The 2019 Domaine Tempier Bandol la Migoua is a red wine that exudes elegance and complexity. Hailing from the renowned Bandol region of Provence, France, this wine is a true representation of the artistry and tradition of winemaking in the area.

In the glass, the wine showcases a deep, ruby red color that is both captivating and inviting. Its vibrant hue hints at the intensity and richness that awaits the palate. With an alcohol content of 15.0%, this wine demonstrates the perfect balance between power and finesse.

On the nose, the 2019 Bandol la Migoua reveals enticing aromas of raspberry sherbet and garrigue. These fragrances intertwine beautifully, creating a bouquet that is both alluring and captivating. It is a testament to the careful selection and blending of the varietals in this proprietary blend, which consists of approximately 55% Mourvèdre, 25% Cinsault, 15% Grenache, and 5% Syrah.

As the wine caresses the tongue, it unveils its true character. Medium to full-bodied, it offers a concentrated and supple mouthfeel that delights the senses. The tannins, initially gentle, grow in intensity on the long and lingering finish, leaving a potent yet ripe dustiness that adds to the wine's complexity.

This 2019 Bandol la Migoua is a remarkable effort by Domaine Tempier, showcasing their dedication to producing wines of exceptional quality. With a score of 95 from Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, this wine is highly regarded and promises to age gracefully for two decades or more.
