    Clos Cibonne

    France (France), Provence (France)

    6 x 750 ml

    Ham, Hard Cheese, Red Meat, Suckling Pig, Vegetables


    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.

    Clos Cibonne

    France (France), Provence (France)

    6 x 750 ml

    Olivier Salad, Rich Fish, Roasted Vegetables, Salad, Soft Cheese, Vegetables, White Meat


    "Clos Cibonne has been called the R. López de Heredia of France, growing serious rosés that age well for a decade or more. They are based on Tibouren, a local variety that’s dropped out of favor because of its thin skins and uneven ripening. Cibonne has staked its reputation on Tibouren nonetheless, ever since the 1930s, when then-proprietor André Roux replanted all his Mourvèdre with it. This cuvée comes off the estate’s oldest vines, growing in schist within sight of the coast. It ages under a veil of yeast, like Sherry, in 100-year-old foudres, developing a pale copper hue and the scent of a cool, shady glade. Earthy with notes of hazelnuts, blood orange and lemon zest, as well as mouthwatering salinity, it’s the sort of rosé that could stand up to spiced lamb dishes, or rice-stuffed tomatoes."
