    September 30, 2019 - Dinner with the wine group (Hillside Supper Club): Cork was in good shape. Medium ruby, medium bricking; aromatic, lovely spiced meats, red cherry, complex musk with almost elegant minerals; palate is medium bodied, fully integrated medium tannins, red fruit at full maturity; medium finish. The nose is fantastic, the palate fully mature and possibly fading a touch, but overall superb and one of the best bottles of Tempier that I've had. 93-94

    May 9, 2018 - This is drinking beautifully - classic and classy, perfumed, and tasty. Not unlike a well aged claret, but with something a bit more wild. The '93 Tourtine was great as well, but the Migoua might have edged it out by a bit.

    May 7, 2018 - Tempier at Margeaux Brasserie (Chicago, IL): Compared to the Tourtine, I found this wine a little dustier, showing less green pepper and a bit more dried herb aromas (even though, really, they're all different green tones). The palate here is crisp and clean, with the funk taking a backseat to the generous amounts of crisp red fruit. The herbal elements are also present on the palate, and there are just slight hints of earth that serve to add complexity here. Still fresh, this is likely in its prime drinking window. Get to these before they turn too funky and weird.

    April 18, 2014 - France: 38 Wines from Kermit Lynch (E&R Wine Shop, Portland OR): Very funky notes. Smells old and bretty. Still, there's plenty of vibrancy underneath that, if you can get past it, particularly with vigorous swirling. There's blackberries and strawberries covered in dusty notes. Nice palate, which is soft, and still some tannin present. Good spiced dark fruit with slight old wood notes, but not too much depth. Quite tart and acidic on the finish. Nice puckeringly tannic with more sips.

    (Domaine Tempier Bandol Migoua) Another deeply coloured wine. A challenging nose for some here, but I find it fascinating. Very organic aromas, of compost and well-hung meat, as well as a metallic, iron-filings note. In a word, stinky. The palate continues in the same vein - obvious mature complexity, with more organic character. Still grippy, although the tannins have just about all gone, still fresh and very much alive. This is classy stuff.
