Domaine Tempier, Bandol Cuvée Spéciale 1988

Tempier Speciale 1988

Luminous garnet, pink-orange rim. The mellowness that comes with full-maturity yet still precise.  Sumptuous and caramelized with a broad spectrum of unami flavors: it tastes like jamón bellota, dusted in coriander, served in a seaweed wrapper.  The finish is a saturated terroir of acorn, iron-salt and carbonized earth.  Overcome with character, this Bandol.  For drinking soon; will keep beautifully.
