Domaine Tempier Bandol Cabassaou 1993
Bandol is an old port town on france’s mediterranian coast, located between toulon and marseille, it is one of the oldest wine producing regions in the world. (from 600 bc)
the terraces on the hills behind offer an exceptionally suitable terroir * for the mourvèdre, a difficult to handle grape that rewards care and effort with fascinating wines.

Nowhere else on this blue marble we call earth does the modest varietal mourvèdre reach it's lofty pinnacle but at domaine tempier, a long champion of mourvèdre and leading domaine for the bandol aoc
