Domaine Tempier Bandol La Migoua 2021


| /

Region: Bandol
Grapes: Mourvèdre, Cinsault, Grenache, Syrah
First Glance: Savoury, Structured, Dark Fruited, Earthy

The Wine:
Located on the Beausset Vieux hillside, at an altitude of 300 meters, La Migoua consists of scattered parcels circled by wild scrubland. An extraordinary geological accident formed very complex soil.

Clusters are hand-selected in the vineyard and in the cellar; de-stemmed, crushed and put into concrete vats for 3 to 4 weeks to ferment naturally with indigenous yeasts. Elevage is for 18 months in large old foudres

The Review:
Tom Wolf - Kermit Lynch
In 2021, this cuvée recalls the classique above, but with everything dialed up a notch. Savory and structured, it evokes Provençal garrigue, licorice, and a hint of black olive. This bottling is a strong candidate for your cellar but also open enough to pair wonderfully with a ribeye today."
