When Lucie “Lulu” Tempier married Lucien Peyraud in 1936, her father gave them Domaine Tempier, an active farm that had been in the family since 1834, near Le Plan du Castellet, just outside the Mediterranean seaport village of Bandol. Tasting a pre-phylloxera bottle of Domaine Tempier Bandol (a wedding gift from his father-in-law) inspired Lucien to research the terroir of Bandol extensively. In due time he restored the vineyards, replanting them largely to Mourvedre, and labored successfully to establish for Bandol its own A.O.C. Lucien was succeeded by his two sons, who have now retired, and the torch has been passed to the young, energetic, and talented Daniel Ravier, who has just the right savoir faire to carry on the great tradition and style of the domaine. La Migoua is a single-vineyard wine, a blend of Mourvedre, Grenache, Cinsault, and Syrah; packed but racy, with a gorgeous note of cassis-soaked rosemary adding lift to the core of steeped plum, black currant and roasted alder notes, the wine has a long, taut finish.
