Domaine Tempier is one of the most legendary producers in France. The farm dates back to the 18th century and has been in the Tempier family since 1834. Today, the estate is known to produce some of the world’s best rosés as well as bold, earth-driven single vineyard wines that can surely withstand the test of time. The La Migoua vineyard sits at the highest altitude of all the Tempier sites and is made up of scattered parcels that are circled by garrigue and pine forests, translating as earthy, gamey wines. This cuvée is Tempier’s least Mourvèdre heavy wine and is loaded with flavors of crushed red berries, smoke, and sweet spices. The high acidity and powerful tannins make this a perfect candidate for cellaring and will drink beautifully for decades to come.
