Domaine Tempier

Of all of the agencies that A&B Vintners represent, Domaine Tempier is one of our most longstanding and treasured relationships. Since 2000, my personal friendship with the winemaker, Daniel Ravier, has resulted in this iconic estate becoming a flagship domaine of our own business. A&B's first purchase was the 1999 vintage, with 2000 being Daniel's inaugural year. Unquestionably, mon ami has taken the estate forward and, today, Domaine Tempier is producing some of its greatest ever bottles.
 
The celebrity of Tempier lies deep in those soils of Bandol. Variations of clay and limestone soils - between the different vineyards - produce wines that are undeniably world class. Whether their cult following is established through their outrageously delicious rosé, their divine Bandol blanc or the majestic ageworthy cuvées of Bandol rouge is beside the point. These legendary beauties are the benchmark of the appellation, Grand Cru de Provence, in all three colours. If any wine can be said to have soul, it’s Domaine Tempier.
