2020 Domaine Tempier "Lulu et Lucien" Bandol

SKU #1673165

Domaine Tempier's Lulu et Lucien is a tribute wine to most influential figures in the region: Lulu Peyraud and her husband Lucien. He was the driving force behind establishing the Bandol AOC, while Lulu was the consummate entertainer and a matriarch for the wine community. She passed away in 2020 at age 102. The 2020 is 75% Mourvèdre, 14% Grenache, 9% Cinsault, and 2% Carignan. The importer says, "You’ll want to savor as many bottles as possible, as soon as possible, to take advantage of the intoxicating young fruit: wild blackberries and violets leap from the glass, while the surprisingly supple tannins encourage diving in headfirst before the wine bulks up and closes down for a period of hibernation. Less dense or concentrated than in 2019, it should still age exceptionally well, but it would be a crime not to uncork a few bottles in its vibrant youth—simply, as Lulu would say, 'pour le plaisir' ". *Organic*
