£15.00

Traditional Côtes de Provence rosé blend with a higher than typical proportion of Tibouren, an historic and extremely rare variety that is said to have been a favourite of Julius Caesar.  Sustainably grown grapes from vines on average 20-years-old. Very pale colour, delicate aroma of peaches and spice, brilliant minerality and lingering finish. Perfect as an aperitif.

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).

    I’ve enjoyed this greatly as an aperitif with its delicate fruity flavour. Would also be great with fish or seafood.
