La Migoua is one of the single vineyard Bandol reds produced at Domaine Tempier. The site is 11 hectares with vines at an average of 40 years old, planted on rock layers rich in limestone. This is the cru with the least amount of Mourvedre in the blend and tends to be a little more forward than La Tourtine and Cabassou, although it still has great cellaring potential: the Grenache and Cinsault bring complex elements to the aromas whilst gently softening the tannins of the Mourvedre.

France | Provence | Bandol | Domaine Tempier | Organic | 50% Mourvedre, 20% Grenache Noir, 26% Cinsault, 4% Syrah | ABV 14.5% | Drink 2025 - 2035+ | 75cl

The Region

Provence Wines

Provence

Provence is perhaps the most picturesque of France's wine regions with azure coasts and lavender fields. There has been a tsunami of rosé flooding our shores from this region, some of it of questionable quality, but in the majority the wines are extremely likeable and in some instances, outstanding.

We are particularly fond of Domaine des Mapliers for their sophisticated and gastronomic style, but who can forget Chateau d'Esclans for their Whispering Angel which is nothing short of a phenomenon. The very best examples in our opinion come from the world class estate of Domaine Tempier producing outstanding wines in all three colours.

The Producer

Domaine Tempier

Domaine Tempier

Domaine Tempier is undoubtedly the leading producer of Bandol and has been under ownership of the same family since the 1880s. The estate is famed for its long-lived, powerful, tannic reds from mostly the Mourvedre grape variety, but also its elegant and ageworthy rosé and white. The quality of the wines here is known throughout the world, and recognised as one of the South of France's greatest wine producers, and a long-term favourite of Noble Grape.
