The Bandol vineyards lie between Marseille and Toulon on the terraced slopes of a natural amphitheater that runs down to the shores of the Mediterranean.

Located in the heart of the Bandol terroir, Domaine Tempier was already in existence during the reign of Louis XV (1715-74). The house was built in 1834 and the estate gained recognition in 1885 when it won its first gold medal. The architect of this rebirth in the wake of the phylloxera epidemic that had devastated France's vineyards was Leonie Tempier, who replanted the vines on rootstocks and, in 1880, had a barrel cellar and cement fermentation tanks built.

Today the vineyards are carefully and properly maintained without chemical fertilizers or herbicides, and using only selective treatments and selected rootstocks and so on. At the same time, the cellar boasts high-performance equipment which enables the Domaine to move with the times.

Wine maker notes
The grapes used to make our rose come from selectedparcels where the vines are, on average, 20 years old. The yields are low, which explains the intense concentration and distinct expression of each varietal in this wine. The presence of Mourvedre gives this wine its' strong character, balance, and complexity.

An intense fruit and floral nose make this an attractive rose. The palate is rounded and full with fruity aromas of peach and pomegranate, followed by delicate spice notes and a pleasant freshness created by acidic balance.
