Domaine Tempier

      Lucien Peyraud of Domaine Tempier was the godfather of Bandol. When he married Lucie Tempier in 1936 they inherited the estate and, inspired by tasting a 19th century bottle of Domaine Tempier Bandol, worked tirelessly to restore its glory and establish the combination of Bandol and the Mourvèdre grape variety as one of the great wines of France. Tempier remains the benchmark for Bandol - red, white and rosé.
