Clos Cibonne is perhaps one of the most prestigious and sought after rosés from Provence that we proudly have in stock (luckily, as there are only very few produced. The Tentations is as good as it gets in Provence. And for half the price of some other famous ones with funny shaped bottles...

A classic Spring/Summer sippier that is classic and elegant, yet fun, flirty, and damn delicous! Bright, crisp, and mineral, with searingly amazing texture and acid. It will get your mouth watering for more! I can't wait to lay out on my deck and drink this baby all day long!!!(Christie Cartwright, Hollywood Buyer
