Domaine Tempier Bandol Classique 2018


Bandol Rouge is one of the world’s greatest crossover wines. It’s New World-esq’ power is perfectly tempered by the nuanced, earthy and savoury characteristics which are quintessentially Old World. Thanks to the region’s limestone soil, Bandol’s red wines have a distinct freshness and fine structure, appealing to those who love the classically styled wines of the Rhône.

Tempier’s Classique is a blend of various sites that shows off the elegant style that this Domaine is known for. Aged in large oak casks for a minimum of 18 months minimum before bottling. Its aromas are reminiscent of a woodland walk; bramble fruits, fragrant dried herbs, pine needles, red and black cherries and savoury, leathery, meaty notes. On the palate there is more liquorice and violet florality. Fine-grained gravelly tannins and a juicy acidic backbone. This is an elegant yet powerful wine that benefits from being open and decanted for at least 30 minutes. As with all Tempier reds, it will age phenomenally for another 10 to 20 years if you are patient enough.
