Côtes de Provence "Cru Classe" Rouge Tibouren 2022

Nate Wall

Really lovely wine. Great fruit, amazing texture. This used to be much more affordable, so a bit less QPR these days. Will love to see how this grape (Tibouren / Rossese) does in our Applegate Valley vineyard! — 13 days ago

Cuvée Marius Côtes de Provence Cru Classé Tibouren Rosé 2018

So this happened,,,, I need to rethink & re score every Rose’ I’ve had. This is Beyond anything I’ve opened. I only started drinking Rose’ as a compromise with wifey who didn’t care for Chardonnay. But I’m not sharing these bottles, I have her porch pounders separated. No pounding these
Winery notes as follows,

Clos Cibonne is one of the most historic and prestigious estates in Provence. They are one of the few estates to cultivate and focus on Tibouren, an heirloom variety with very few hectares planted. They also age their wines under fleurette, a thin veil of yeast similar to that found in Jerez and Jura, for a year in large oak casks. The Cuvée Marius takes these practices and raises it to the next level. Named for Marius Roux, the wine is an homage to him and the original Château name. Marius would load his wine in barrel onto his cart and travel to the village every week on market days to sell his special wine. Made of 90% Tibouren and 10% Grenache, the wine is aged in smaller casks for a couple of years. It is almost a rosé in name only with its onion skin color, full body and layered intensity. This is what the French call a gastronomic wine, easy to pair with complex meals. Suitable for drinking now, this wine also has many more years ahead of it.

Côtes de Provence Cru Classé Rosé Tibouren 2021

I’ve reviewed this before, but I really didn’t have the same appreciation the first time around. It really is a rose in name only, with a silky orange color, like satin, with a medium texture and a nose of citrus rind, hibiscus, peach skin or some other florals, and a palate that evokes complex, ripe orange, herbs or like, leaves in a way, vegetal, with dried apricot, a beautiful minerality and acid balance, with a lingering finish that emerges somewhat oily, more citrus rind that fruit. It really is delicious, and a surprisingly good pairing for corned beef/egg breakfast blend over a deep dark toast! — 24 days ago
