The origin of the refinement and elegance of Pibarnon wines lies in its captivating site overlooking the Mediterranean, where the vines, planted on restanques (traditional Provençal dry-stone retaining walls) up to 300 metres above sea level, live in perfect symbiosis with a carefully preserved ecosystem and an exceptional local soil. Those factors on their own would justify the estate’s classification as a “clos” or a “climate”, like the great wines of Burgundy.
NUANCES Rosé was born out of our continuous tastings of Pibarnon’s young and older vintage Rosés. This is how the idea for a Grand Rosé sprung up: a rosé that would be deliberately kept in the cellar during the first spring and the first summer and would then be launched in the autumn, to be served with white meats, autumn and winter dishes, whilst maintaining hints of the Mediterranean.
A highly complex, expansive bouquet evokes fresh, mineral-laced red berries, peach, orange zest, candied lavender and fennel. Sappy, penetrating and pure, offering concentrated red berry and pit fruit flavors braced by a spine of juicy acidity and a spicy jolt of white pepper. Finishes extremely long and silky; mouth-watering acidity energizes the lingering strawberry and nectarine qualities.
