Tasting Notes

As ever, Clos Cibonne honours the Tibouren grape variety with this cuvée produced from 90% Tibouren and 10% Grenache. Fermentation is temperature-regulated and the wine is matured in barrels for between 4–6 months. An attractive ruby hue delivers a generous fruit-forward nose with a hint of mild spice. In the mouth it stands out for its remarkable silken texture and elegance, pairing perfectly alongside the earthy depth of roast veal and pan-fried mushrooms. Serve slightly cool to enjoy at its best.

16/20 Guide Vert Revue de Vin de France - 1 Star in the RVF Green Guide, indicating a fine winemaker with a great level of production.

The Producer

Clos Cibonne

The property of Clos Cibonne dates back to 1797 when the Roux Family purchased it from Jean Baptiste de Cibon, captain of the royal marines of Louis XVI. In 1930, André Roux modernized the winery in order to pursue his goal of producing top quality wines at the estate. This revival ignited an era of fame for the rosés of Clos Cibonne.

In the 1980s, hard times fell upon the estate and it drifted without clear direction until Bridget, André Roux’s granddaughter, and her husband, Claude Deforge, took it over in the late 1990s. Their immediate goal was to bring the estate back to its former grandeur. By renovating the cellars while preserving the tradition of aging in old foudres, the family began to reestablish the vaunted reputation of the domaine. Thanks to their efforts Clos Cibonne once again lives up to its standing as one of the 18 Cru Classés in Côtes de Provence.
