A dry rose from a little grown Provence varietal called Tibouren. An aromatic grape, it's excellently suited fro making rose wine, a specialty of Provence overall but only very rarely of Tibouren. The importer recommends pairing with red mullet fillets or tomato bouillabaisse, but really this is a super versatile wine for most any meal. Practicing organic agriculture. Cirtus peels, salt and tart berries.
From the mouth of the importer (De Maison Selections):
"The property of Clos Cibonne dates back to 1797 when the Roux Family purchased it from Jean Baptiste de Cibon, captain of the royal marines of Louis XVI. In 1930, André Roux modernized the winery in order to pursue his goal of producing top quality wines at the estate. This revival ignited an era of fame for the rosés of Clos Cibonne.
Clos Cibonne crafts a wine that is completely its own through combining a rare grape with a unique aging process. There are two rosés currently available from the estate: the classic rosé and the Cuvée Spéciale des Vignettes that is sourced only from the estate’s oldest vines. These two wines are complemented by the Cuvée Spéciale Tibouren, a unique red wine made primarily from Tibouren."
