Tasting Notes

A serious rosé and a complex dry wine. From old-vine Tibouren grown in schisty soils, the wine was aged in huge 100-year-old oak foudres under a local yeast called "fleurette." This technique also exists in the Jura and Jerez, Spain. The wine, pale copper in color, exudes warm, dusty spices on the nose complemented by flowers tinged with light caramel on the palate. One of the few rosés that are ageworthy and lovely all year round. Serve with roasted lobster, shellfish stew, sheep's-milk cheeses, and pistou.

Staff Pick Notes

What’s your favorite wine? It’s a common question, but can be tough to answer. I’d definitely put this bottle in my top 10 list. I still remember my introduction to it, my friend telling me in advance that it wasn’t like any other rosé. It was definitely an eye opener, clearly one of those "AHA!" moments that expanded my understanding of how amazing wines can be. It's a next level rosé, a masterclass in what this color category has to offer. I still describe it this way. Clos Cibonne stands far above many pink Provencal wines trendily consumed like water three months out of the year. One of the hallmarks of an outstanding wine is its ability to improve with age. This bottle is pushing toward a decade & it’s still full of complexity and life. This wine really is something else.
