Côtes de Provence Rosé 2019
VITICULTURE + VINIFICATION
The ‘Tentations’ wines are from the négoce range from Clos Cibonne, where the term ‘Clos’ is not allowed. A traditional Côtes de Provence rosé blend with a higher than typical proportion of Tibouren. No one grows this old, rare grape better than Clos Cibonne. Sustainably grown grapes from vines on average 20-years-old. The Grenache, Syrah, and Cinsault are grown by growers Clos Cibonne have been working with for over a decade. The Tibouren is grown by Clos Cibonne and is added to give that point of difference to the rosé. Some varieties are fermented en foudre – as is traditional.
Very pale colour, delicate aroma of peaches and spice, brilliant minerality and smooth finish. A rosé with more texture and complexity than you might expect, yet still eminently drinkable on a sunny afternoon.
