"Clos Cibonne crafts a wine that is completely its own through combining a rare grape with a unique aging process."

92 Wine Advocate - 2022
A blend of 90% Tibouren and 10% Grenache, all matured in ancient barrels (some are over 100 years old), the 2022 Cotes de Provence Rose Tibouren Cuvee Tradition evokes aromas of tangerine, exotic fruits, rose petal, lychee, sweet spices, thyme, ginger and a delicate touch of licorice. Medium to full-bodied, with a succulent entry, the wine is perfectly balanced, fleshy and juicy on the palate, with a long, salty, mouthwatering finish. This well-made, forward, balanced beauty will drink well all summer long and much more.

One of the most individual, original, and characterful rose wines in the wine world are the Tibouren based rose wines made by Clos Cibonne. Over time, Clos Cibonne became synonymous with Tibouren and received special permission from the A.O.C. to list the grape on its labels - this is extremely rare in France where almost all wines are labeled by where the wine comes from.

Clos Cibonne’s iconic Cuvée Tradition stands uniquely apart from other rosés as a classic, one-of-a-kind Côtes de Provence rosé featuring the tibouren grape in the lead role. Cuvée Tradition is legendary amongst experienced French wine collectors for its texture, substance, and ability to age gracefully for a decade or more. It is a limited wine made exclusively with estate-grown, organic tibouren grapes, and a bit of grenache to meet Côtes de Provence blending guidelines. The vineyard, one of 18 Crus Classés of Côtes de Provence, consists of traditional goblet trained vines located close to the Mediterranean Sea in the foothills of the Maures mountains, overlooking Toulon’s harbor. The microclimate of Clos Cibonne is especially important to the uniqueness of the wines, as the proximity of the ocean brings much needed cool air to the vineyards in the summer months. Their location at the foot of the Maures mountains ensures good east-west ventilation, which is ideal for the health and balance of the vineyard.

Vinification – After an early morning manual harvest, the grapes are destemmed and directly pressed. The must goes into temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks, which are cooled to slow the fermentation process. After fermentation with native yeasts, the wine is racked into 100-year-old foudres, where it ages biologically on the fine lees for one year sous-voile, under a thin veil of fleurette.
