Domaine Tempier Cuvee Cabassaou


Covering 60 hectares and sprawling across five villages, this famous, family-owned estate needs little introduction. The vineyards are certified organic, and biodynamic principles are also employed, albeit without certification. With a high proportion of old-vine Mourvèdre, the wines are typically long-lived, with the 2011 Touraine and 2004 Cabassaou drinking beautifully at the moment but with plenty of life still ahead. A reference point in the appellation.

The Cabassaou cuvée (ça cabasse = gives a hefty punch) is from a terroir with small stone walls, at the bottom of the Tourtine, protected from the Mistral wind. The vines benefit from a very warm micro-climate with thermal winds. Paradoxically the vines are located at the bottom of the hill but the soil is not deep and the yields are very small. They give a very dense, tight wine, typically Mourvèdre , with an exceptional aging potential.
