La Migoua is one of Domaine Tempier's single vineyard Bandol's. This vineyard is 11 hectares with vines with average age of 40 years. La Migoua is is the wine that has the lowest proportion of Mourvedre of all Tempier's reds: 55% with the balance made up of Cinsault, Grenache Noir and Syrah.

The site is made up of scattered parcels, surrounded by scrubland at 300 metres elevation. The coolness of the elevation is mitigated by the weakness of the Mistral at this exposition, in parts to the east, west and south.

The resulting wine is the more 'Burgundian' of all Tempier's reds: for what is lacks in the sheer density of La Tourtine and Cabassou, it makes up in perfume, elegance and finesse.

The Vintage

Domaine Tempier 2019s

Domaine Tempier 2019s

Domaine Tempier is one of the South of France's great wine producers. We have been following this Bandol estate for a number of years. The release of the new vintage is always an exciting time.

Domaine Tempier is the flagship estate of Bandol: a region known for its top quality producers. There is hardly a duff producer in the entire region: even the co-op makes pretty decent wine. It's not hard to see why. The vineyards are baked in the Mediterranean sunshine, but always tempered by the Mistral which brings coolness to the vineyards allowing for the slow ripening of the noble but difficult Mourvedre grape variety: Bandol's calling card.

The estate has been championing organics for decades, long before it was fashionable. Roughly a decade ago the estate converted to biodynamics: now, more than ever the wines express their their beautiful terroir. The wines are deep and sensuous with haunting complexity.

Following on from the stormy 2018 vintage, 2019 is much more classic: long periods of Mediterranean sunshine, with the Mistral blowing with gusto. The resulting wines have perfectly ripe tannins and concentration of fruit. The vintage conditions allowed the skins to thicken and the wines show all those aromas and density, even at this young stage. Don't be under any doubt that the wines will age beautifully for decades.
