Domaine Tempier Bandol 'Tourtine' 2015

80% Mourvedre, rounded out with equal parts Grenache and Cinsault, grown on a five hectare plot of clay-limestone soils. Fruit is hand harvested and aged in oak for 18-20 months, giving way to a powerful and dense wine, full of ripe fruit and pronounced structure. A Southern French staple.

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.
