Notes: “The most famous property in the Provence appellation of Bandol is Domaine Tempier. Normally simply labeled as “Bandol Rouge,” this year’s bottling specially recognized estate owner and family matriarch, Lulu Peyraud. A true icon of the wine industry, Lulu – now 102 – celebrated her 100th year in 2017. They could not have picked a better way to honor this remarkable woman, as this wine is simply luminous! A delicious and rugged blend of 75% Mourvedre, 14% Grenache, 9% Cinsault and 2% Carignan, this oh-so-savory wine offers deep earth and dark fruit layers along with pepper, olive and smoke notes. Give it a brief decanting and then enjoy with a hearty dish or stew. And, make sure to google Lulu Peyraud as you enjoy the bottle. This is something very, very special. It is drinking great now and will continue to do so for at least another decade.” – Vin Chicago
