Cibonne Tentations Côtes de Provence Rosé 2019
Grenache 50%, Cinsault 20%, Syrah 15%, Tibouren 15%
Delicate, pale and dry Provençal rosé by pre-eminent cru classé producer Clos Cibonne, which gets its name from Jean-Baptiste de Cibon, captain of Louis XVI's navy and the farm's first owner. André Roux devoted the his efforts to the difficult Tibouren grape in the 1930s and today his descendents carry on that tradition.
Tentations is a traditional Côtes de Provence blend from these parts, but with a higher than usual proportion of Tibouren, naturally! This comes from Clos Cibonne's own vineyard and the remainder from nearby growers who the family have been working with for many years.
Very pale in colour as is to be expected for the best Provence rosé, it has delicate aroma of white peaches and spice along with hallmark herbs and minerality.
