Tasting Notes

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. The effect of one tectonic plate sinking beneath another (subduction) can actually be observed here. During the geological formation of the Alps, the lower layers folded themselves over the younger upper layers. The other unusual feature of this area is the huge geological fracture found in Val d'Arenc which is the reason for the outcrops of rock layers dating back to the Triassic age (200‚–250 million years ago). The vineyard's parcels are intertwined among this wild landscape of scrubland and pine forest. - Winery Note

Owned by the Tempier family since 1834, the Domaine won its first gold medal in 1885 due to the drive and hard work of Lucie's great-grandmother, Léonie, who had the first winery built. Located in the heart of the Bandol appellation, Domaine Tempier's 38 hectares are spread over several parcels facing the sea on steep, sun-drenched slopes. Domaine Tempier is one of the few mid-19th-century family-run wine estates that has stayed true to its past. Here we live as we always have done: according to the rhythm of the seasons, the work in the vineyards and the harvests. - Winery Note
