Provençal Eg­g­plant-Tomato Gratin

2000 DO­MAINE TEM­PIER BANDOL ROUGE AND BANDOL ROUGE LA TOURTINE

(or pair with Do­maine Tem­pier rosé or Mar­cel Lapierre Mor­gon) PAIR­ING NOTES

The smoky eg­g­plant gratin, with sweet onions and herbes de Provence, is a show­case for the earthy wines of Bandol. Richard’s good friends the Peyraud fam­ily own Do­maine Tem­pier, a mag­i­cal prop­erty 30 miles away from his home. Their wines are redo­lent of Provence—of the wild thyme, sa­vory, mar­jo­ram, fen­nel, and rose­mary that color the arid, aro­matic land­scape.
