Product Description

Another cracking release from this organic benchmark. Pibarnon's distinctive Mourvèdre and Cinsault blend (60:40) is drawn from the Estate's stunning amphitheatre of terraces, or restanques, set amid the pine-covered hilltop of La Colline du Télégraphe. This is Bandol's highest vineyard (at 300 metres above the Baie de Bandol), enjoying the freshness and cool nights of the altitude as well as the moderating sea breezes. It's not only the elevation and proximity to the sea that makes this vineyard so special. A peculiar soil type predominates, les marnes bleues. This uncommon and highly chalky, blue-tinted clay, rich in microfossils, is also sometimes encountered in the Jura and Pomerol where it is also prized for its low pH, water-retentive properties and its influence on a wine's freshness and structure. The Cinsault component is pressed directly, bringing elegance, perfume and balance, while the Mourvèdre is bled, saignée-style, and gets several hours of skin contact, bringing more vibrancy, complexity and chalky structure. The two varieties are blended before wild yeast ferment, and the wine is raised exclusively in tank for six months. A classic that once again shows us how serious a wine great Rosé can be.

"Glistening orange. Pungent cherry, blood orange and floral scents, along with suggestions of succulent herbs and chalky minerals. Weighty red berry, citrus fruit and candied lavender flavors show sharp delineation and pick up a deeper peach note with aeration. Silky and broad on the impressively long finish, which leaves a refreshingly bitter orange pith note behind." 92 points, Josh Raynolds, vinous.com
