Domaine Tempier Bandol 2013

Provencal royalty Domaine Tempier has done it again with their Bandol Rouge, dominating the soils of Provence for the better half of the 20th century. This powerful, Mourvedre dominant blend is a savory surprise from this rosé-rich region, full of bold red fruit and lusciously integrated tannins. Juicy and dark-fruited, with notes of herbs; serve with burgers, barbecued ribs, and steaks on the grill.

Mourvedre

Blackberry-scented beauty (a.k.a. Monastrell in Spain) that loves hot climates like Provence in France and Jumilla in southern Spain. It’s thick-skinned and dense making reds with a pleasing gaminess.

Provence, France

Lavender-scented, herb-infused hub of Mediterranean France, and more than a rosé pumping station. Savory whites from local grapes and spicy, ageworthy reds from Mourvèdre are not to be missed.
