Product Description

Most of you won't need reminding that the top Bandol examples are really in a class of their own when it comes to dry, textural Rosé. Pibarnon's model is universally regarded in the top percentile of its class. It's a highly distinctive blend of 50 per cent Mourvèdre - for structure, power and aromatics - and 50 per cent Cinsault - for texture, elegance and delicacy. The Cinsault grapes receive a gentle pressing, giving the fruitiness and flesh to the wine, while the Mourvèdre is bled saignée style and gets several hours of skin contact, giving the wine body, complexity and freshness. The result is wonderful: a refreshing, coral-coloured beauty that is not only impossible to stop drinking but also intellectually satisfying. In other words a rosé for the head and the heart! Much like its forbears the 2011 is intensely aromatic with raspberry, white strawberry, rosemary and citrus zest notes, while the palate is silken textured with similar flavours to the nose but also with a hint of fresh garden herbs. There is a stony, powdery, rose-petal finish framed by gentle structure that just keep drawing you back to the glass. It will marry beautifully with many gastronomic textures and flavours.
