Wave goodbye to winter.
Domaine Tempier you probably already know, but as I was browsing Du Vin Wine and Spirits today, I saw these half bottles in their big diverse bins of 375ml. ($26.99 in half bottle, $43.99 in full)
I love the 2005s, the entry level Bandol is 75% Mourvedre, with the remainder a mix of Grenache and Carignan. Deep and rich, with intense black fruits and it's waayyy less dirty and stinky than the last few vintages. This one actually tastes clean and pretty!
Because it was raining today it seemed like the perfect time to cuddle up at night and drink a toast to the last remnants of winter and spring!
