Domaine Tempier Bandol La Migoua 1998
At Domaine Tempier, we practise the most natural wine-growing methods possible. The land is worked using a combination of traditional, mechanical and manual methods without herbicides. Our rational soil management techniques are based on sustainable development principles which avoid the use of pesticides. We firmly believe that nature must find its own biological balance. The La Migoua area is renowned for its geological features and is often studied for its complex sediment patterns. The outcrops of rocks found in this area date back much further than those in the rest of the Bandol winegrowing area. Cuvée La Migoua is comprised of 50 to 65% Mourvedre depending on the year. A significant amount of Cinsault is also grown in this vineyard, particularly on the south-facing hillside known as 'La Louffe'. With a tendancy towards more animal notes than the estate’s other cuvées, La Migoua expresses great complexity. It is a wine with a delicate nose, excellent balance and a long ageing potential.
