|Availability:||In stock (3)|
Owned by the Roux family since 1797, the property of Clos Cibonne saw its winery modernized in 1930 by André Roux, who hoped to showcase his estate’s rosés. André replaced all of the estate’s mourvèdre with the native grape varietal tibouren, which he believed to be the ideal grape for the region. Bridget Roux (André’s granddaughter) took over in the 1990s, bringing Clos Cibonne back to its standing as one of the 18 Cru Classés in Côtes de Provence. Nowadays, Clos Cibonne is highly esteemed for producing distinctive rosé wines with earthy notes that capture the essence of Provence. This special bottling is 100% tibouren sourced from 60+ year old vines in slate-clay soils. It is aged on the lees for 12-18 months in year-old wood casks before bottling, giving it depth and complexity. This cuvée is vibrant, with a wildly complex bouquet with a wide range of fruits, earth, minerality and herbs. Bold and fresh on the palate, it offers up electrifying berries, stone fruit, and citrus with power, grace, and a delightfully lingering finish. Organically grown.
