Clos Cibonne “Cuvée Caroline” Côtes de Provence Cru Classé Rosé, 2015

£26.50

There’s a hint of white Burgundy about this superior, ambitious rosé made, unusually, with new oak.  Vanilla and toasted coconut overlay the stone fruit, citrus rind and wild herb aromas of the Cuvée Tradition.  Serious stuff and a great food wine.

Clos Cibonne

 

This 17th century estate in the Maures hills overlooking Toulon is the proudest and greatest custodian of a pretty special grape: Tibouren. An ancient Mediterranean variety reputedly favoured by Julius Caesar, it was transported over the Alps by Napoleon’s troops and took root in Liguria as Rossese.

​Here in Provence it makes thirst-quenching, smoky, sapid pinks, and earthier, red-fruited fine reds. Clos Cibonne’s wines are expertly executed and wrapped up in effortlessly timeless labels that haven’t changed since the great Albert Roux’s time at the helm in the 1930s.

Their vineyards are on a special peninsula overlooking the Mediterranean, farmed organically (certified from 2018).

Description

Winemaker Olivier Desforges makes this very special cuvée from the oldest vines on the estate and rests it in new French oak barrels.
