Producer: Domaine Tempier
Iconic producer Domaine Tempier continues to impress with this concentrated, distinct wine. Cuvée La Tourtine is 80% Mourvèdre, with the remaining blend made up of Cinsault and Grenache from 40 year old vines. Aromas of prunes, mocha, and baked blackberries, are matched with an intense minerality on the palate as well as anise and rosemary qualities providing an aromatic lift. This wine leaves you with no question as to the supremacy of the Domaine and the popularity of this tiny appellation!
Food Pairing: Marinated beef shortribs or strong, aged cheeses
