The release of the 2017 Cuvée Classique has been labelled ‘pour Lulu’ and celebrates the 100th birthday of Lucie Peyraud, the much loved doyenne of Tempier. It is a blend of 75% Mourvedre, 14% Grenache, 9% Cinsault and 2% Carignan.

Tasting notes:
'The aromatics of this wine are reminiscent of a walk in the forest – brambly, fragrant dried herbs, pine needles, red and black cherries and savoury, leathery, meaty notes. On the palate there is more licorice, violets, with fine-grained gravelly tannins and a juicy acidity supporting the fruit. This is an elegant yet powerful wine, which will require some decanting if opened soon, but also age phenomenally for the next couple of decades.' – Jolette Steyn (Oct 2020)
