2020 Domaine Tempier Bandol Rose

Rose | Rose Blend
"Light orange-pink. Expressive, mineral-accented orange zest, red currant, nectarine and succulent floral and herb aromas take on a spicy nuance with air. Lively and sharply focused in the mouth, offering concentrated red berry, pit fruit, tangerine and honeysuckle flavors and a hint of tarragon. The mineral and floral notes drive an impressively long, precise finish that leaves white peach and spice notes behind."

Practicing Organic and Biodynamic
"Jean-Philippe and seven regular employees run the vines of the domain and use mechanical and manually processing in order to prepare the soils or to maintain terraces. The vine-pruning as the grape harvest are both manually done according to the cycles of the moon. Weeding is done by sheep and thus more life is brought to the soils.
As far as soil treatment is concerned, home-made herbal teas are sprayed in homeopathic doses to strengthen the vines, regenerate the soils and control the development of parasites. Sulphur is used against powdery mildew and Bordeaux mix against late blight."
