Cotes de Provence

Cuvée Spéciale Tibouren is Clos Cibonne’s easy-drinking, elegant red wine, made mainly from the native tibouren grape with a small percentage of grenache. This Mediterranean wine will make you reevaluate preconceived notions about reds from Provence. Great with a slight chill.
Vinification – After an early morning manual harvest, the grapes are destemmed and fermented with native yeasts in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks. Maceration lasts ten days, with twice-daily pump-overs. After fermentation, the wine is racked into foudres, where it ages for six months before bottling.
