2019 Clos Cibonne ’Tradition’ Cotes du Provence
Another member of the exclusive Cru Classé gang, Clos Cibonne is the most southerly positioned vineyard of the group. Clos Cibonne Tradition Rosé is made up of mostly Tibouren, a rare grape variety found in Provence known for being intensely aromatic and well suited to the Côtes du Provence style. The fruit is aged in large old oak on lees and under flor for one year to develop its fruit flavour and add a sherry-like flavour as well. Orange peel, Mediterranean herbs and melon waft from the glass, the palette is filled with similar flavours along with plenty of minerality and salinity. This wine is supple, aromatic and refreshing.
