On the nose, crisp burst of salines notes, like a sea breeze! And notes of fresh strawberries, orange peel and flowers! An intense explosion of flavors on the palate, with all the tension coming from the balancing act of fresh berries, strawberries and boysenberries in particular, lots of mineral saline notes and a great weight that makes this wine a wonderful companion to food.

“Shimmering orange-pink. Powerful, mineral-accented white peach, raspberry and melon scents, along with building citrus pith and floral nuances. Palate-staining red berry, blood orange, nectarine and lavender flavors deftly meld depth and energy. Shows strong tension and repeating mineral character on the strikingly long finish, which leaves a suave floral note behind. A full-bodied, blush wine that captures the licorice and berry intensity of Mourvèdre with a touch of silk from Cinsault. When you hear people talk of “serious” rosé, they’re talking about this wine.” 65% Mourvèdre and 35% Cinsault

Overlooking the Mediterranean and grown on undulating hills where olive trees, cypresses, figs, pink laurels, pines and oaks grow, the Pibarnon vineyard truly dazzles the eyes – a bit of paradise in Provence, situated on the highest slopes of the soil of Bandol.
Hand-harvested. Cinsault grapes are pressed directly, while Mourvèdre grapes are placed in tank, and free-run juice (rosé de saignée) is drawn off. The wines are blended after fermentation on indigenous yeasts in temperature-controlled, stainless-steel tanks. Aged for six months in tank.
