Each of the three single vineyard Bandol's made by Tempier is a great wine, and they all have subtly different characters. La Tourtine sits just above the Cassabou vineyard and produces wines of great power and structure, complemented by a gorgeous fresh fruit character. Like all the Tempier wines it can be aged for 10+ years.
40+ year old vines. Fermented with wild yeasts in stainless steel. Matured in large oak casks (25-75hl) for 18 to 20 months. Unfined and unfiltered.
