About This Producer


Domaine Tempier is located at Le Plan du Castellet. Its vineyards stretch over three different communities- Le Castellet, Le Beausset and La Cadiere. The plots of land are thus far apart and require extra work. But the soil of these different areas yield distinctive cuvees -Speciale, Migoua, Tourtine and Cabassaou - as well as interesting and complex blends for white, rose and red wines. Domaine Tempier owns 30 hectares. It produces AOC Bandol exclusively - an average of 68% red, 29% rose and 3% white wines, approximately 120,000 bottles per year.

Wine Varietal: Mourvedre


Mourvedre is a red variety that produces robust, gamy, and spiced wines. The primary grape in Bandol and the rose wines of Provence, Mourvedre is also used in Rhone blends. It is also commonly found in Spain where it is believed to have originated and where it is referred to as Monastrell. It can also be found under the name Mataro in Portugal and the New World. Typical descriptors for Mourvedre include thyme, clove, cinnamon, black pepper, violet, game, cured meats, leather, and blackberry.
