Delicious, but very tight and angular at present. Herbs, dark fruit, blood and mineral. Needs time, fantastic potential

Interesting Southern France wine. Aromas of pronounced berry and floral scents. On the palate raspberry and plum flavors, currant like. Aged in oak for about 20 months. Well balanced, still very tight, long finish but needs time to develop. Tasting Sample.

Forgot how much I love this wine. Gorgeous showing in its youth. Rich fruit, generous and still maintaining a presence of finesse and focus. Very “jolie.” All that lip-smacking is bound together but Tempier distinctive sauvage/earthy/herbal character. Really found the brett interlaced nicely too, very complimentary. Roasted black cherry and plum fruit, black fig, fur, worn leather, animal hide, tar, cooling herbs, cloves, garrigue. Found its grip to refined, more supportive than dominating.

So much going on in this glass! Iron, barnyard, garrigue, black cherry, plum, leather, moist soil, dried flowers and herbs, spice, anise, and cocoa powder. A beautiful wine!

First Hummingbird April 27th! Earliest sighting for me!

Half bottle. Pop and Poured.

Medium purple color. Classic nose filled with violets. This wine really struck me as a mix between Burgundy and Bordeaux. The sweet fruit of Burgundy and the earthy, cow shit from Bordeaux. Deep and bold, with a medium plus finish.
