- Buy 6 for £51.30 each and save 5%
La Tourtine is one of the single-vineyard wines produced at Domaine Tempier. The vineyard is 5.5 hectares planted on a southerly exposed site, looking at the sea. The 45 - 50-year-old vines are planted on sandstone and marl with gypsum at the surface. This exceptional terroir, combined with the old vines, produces reds that are long-lived, elegant and poised.
The wine shows aromas of wild herbs, minerals, cloves, and camphor combined with black and red fruits. The potent tannins will need some time to resolve, but you can now just about glimpse its greatness.
