2020 Domaine Tempier Bandol Rosé
A wine that requires almost no introduction, Domaine Tempier is the benchmark for Bandol rosé. The blend is 55% Mourvèdre, 25% Grenache, and 20% Cinsault grown on vineyards averaging 20 years of age. The 2020 is textbook Tempier, featuring zippy citrus zest, nectarine and peach, and a cool-fruited finish accented by a biting herbaceousness. The pristine balance, fine-grained texture, density without weight, and class throughout leave no doubt that this remains among the world’s finest rosés.
