Grape: 70% Mourvèdre, 30% Cinsault
Tasting Notes: Berry, Floral, Citrus, Mineral
The Bandol region was essentially undiscovered when Catherine and Henri de Saint Victor founded Pibarnon in 1977. Recognizing the region’s potential, this visionary couple worked tirelessly for some 30 years, crafting ever better wines. By the 1990s, Pibarnon was making and is still making the region’s top red and rosé wines.
The Pibarnon rosé ia 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. Ages tremendously well!
The mouthfeel is very fresh, medium bodied with nice minerality, light tannins, and crisp acidity. Rich, silky, and complex on the palate delivering flavors of raspberries, blood orange, a touch of peach, wet gravel, herbs, jasmine and light floral notes. Works particularly well with seafood dishes and pork chops braised with onions and fresh tomatoes.
