One of the most recognised estates in Bandol, thanks largely to US wine merchant Kermit Lynch, who’s sung its praises since the 70s. Lulu Peyraud, who ran the estate with her the late husband Lucien from the 30s, is still gong strong at 103. Incredible. The rosé is a blend of approximately 55% mourvèdre, 25% grenache and 20% cinsault.
“The Bandol Tempier Rosé offers a unique blend of complexity and freshness. It has a fine structure, with no tannin. The high-quality care given to the vines and the diversity of the terroirs produce a flavorful intensity and a strong typicity.”Winemaker’s notes.

‘The 2017 Uccelliera Rosso di Montalcino is a simply fantastic release. Displaying wonderful class and refinement, this opens to inviting aromas of sweet red berries, dried cherries, leather, dried herbs and spices all developing in the glass.This medium-bodied red is beautifully structured around silky tannins and possesses lovely inner-depth along with a round inviting texture through the finish. This is already showing remarkably well and could offer a decade long drinking window. An absolutely fabulous Rosso in this vintage.” 92 Points, International Wine Report

The ‘Vigna Senza Nome’ (no-name vineyard) has a highly aromatic nose which is characteristic of
the Moscato d’Asti. It has delicate notes of grapes, orange blossoms, jasmine and elderflowers. Soft
floral notes and the sweet primary grape aromas are translated well onto the palate. Pleasantly
refreshing, with soft notes of orange blossom and honeyed stone fruit with a clean finish. A
beautiful, high-quality Moscato for any occasion.
Raboso Piave is the finest indigenous vine of the Treviso district, one of the few native varieties of Veneto to survive the invasion of phylloxera that destroyed Europe’s viticulture in the late 1800s. The wine it produces has a dry, austere taste, fairly hard and sharp. It is aged in casks that blend and heighten the fragrances and flavours of the vine with the pleasant tones of oak. Ready to be drunk from its third year, this wine can be aged for several years. It is ideal served with spit-roasted and white meats, game, roasts and ripe cheeses.
Region: Treviso, Italy
