Chateau de Pibarnon Rose 2015
Pibarnon is considered one of the benchmark rosés of France.
“The rosé is unfailingly one of the most savory in Provence. The red is robust when young but develops a range of subtle, typically Mediterranean aromas, together with very fine tannins that places it amongst the greatest of all the French wines.” Bettane and Desseauve’s Guide to the Greatest Wine of France 2011 (Big cheese French critics).
“The 2015 is something very special. The texture silky and round, yet the generosity is shot through with spicy, savoury freshness that reflects the cool, limestone soils and the altitude of the vines here. Expect a beautifully perfumed wine with all kinds of wild berry, stone fruit and floral aromas and flavours as well as crystalline hints of crushed limestone, fresh picked provençal herbs and star anise. Pulpy texture, intensity, freshness and savoury drive. Don’t expect the bottle to last long! Buy what you can for drinking over summer.” Bibendum Wine Co.
