Domaine Tempier Bandol Rose 2022
To call Domaine Tempier Rose is one of the cult wines of the world is to make a slight understatement. Made mostly from Mourv?dre ( 50%) with Grenache and Cinsault playing support roles, this wine is made with direct pressing and settled at cool temperatures in both stainless steel and concrete vats. The average vine age is 20 years, the wine is bone dry and was aged for six to eight months prior to bottling
Flavours of candied citrus fruit, melon and rose petal add surprising depth to this pale coloured dry rose.
It drinks well on release, as is to be expected with pink wines, but this one also has the potential to age and evolve beautifully for at least five years, say its makers in the appellation of Bandol in Provence in southern France.
Serve it lightly chilled.
