Not your average “Jo-sé”. Bone dry, heavyweight at 14+ alc, intense. A huge guy. Buy it by the case.
Terrific with a 12 hours braised lamb shank+ herbes de Provence. Add some roasted apricots.

Half bottles don't age so well, I love this wine but time in this format has not done it well.

Other than that it was pretty decent, just not its usual epic self.

Love this wine. Could age for a while--I know they make very little; I was at the winery a few months ago & they didn't have any to sell! Tempier is one of the best producers in southern France!

This batch we purchased (not via Kermit retail or importation) has performed poorly, provenance is key!

No better rose on the planet imo. Strawberry, orange peel, citrus blend in the nose. A small hint of secondary age in the nose. Will easily go another 10-15.

Waited too long on this one... It is crossing to the dark side.
