2017 Clos Cibonne Tibouren Côtes de Provence Rouge

SKU #1415648 92 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Limpid, amber-hued orange. A highly complex bouquet evokes dried red berries, tangerine, peach, honey and pungent flowers, and a smoky mineral nuance builds in the glass. Dry and penetrating on the palate, offering intense red currant, strawberry, pit fruit marmalade and blood orange flavors that take on a spicy element on the back half. Manages to be both powerful and lithe, showing excellent clarity and minerally thrust on an impressively long, focused finish. Experience has proven to me just how ageworthy this iconic producer's pink wine can be. Enjoy this one now, with some decanter time, or cellar it, with confidence, for at least another decade. (JR) Inner quote mark (8/2019)

K&L Notes

Importer's Notes: A blend of 90% Tibouren and 10% Grenache, fermented with native yeasts and aged in old foudre for 6 months before bottling. Bright ruby in color, with fresh red berries and Provençal garrigue on the nose, this is quite atypical for a southern French red. Light to medium bodied with a delicate texture, it handles a chill well for summertime drinking, especially alongside grilled lamb chops and ratatouille.
