Clos Cibonne, Côtes de Provence Rosé Cru Classé ‘Tradition’ 2020

£28.00

Description

Clos Cibonne takes its name from Jean-Baptiste de Cibon, captain of Louis XVI’s Royal navy and first owner of the vineyard. After his death in 1797, the property was sold to the Roux family’s ancestors. In the 1930s, André Roux gave its spurs to the vineyard surrounding the Tibouren grape variety. Since then, Jacqueline Roux (Andre’s daughter) and her children have carried on the tradition. The vineyard is located by the Mediterranean, in the southeast of France, between Marseilles and Nice. Natural fermentation takes place in very old oak foudres. After 12-18 months in 110-year-old foudres, the wine is bottled. The wine is a lovely salmon-orange colour. This is a smooth, spicy, gastronomic rosé with some lovely texture and structure, clean fruit flavours of orange peel and peach, good acidity and balance, with lasting palate.
