Clos Cibonne Tradition Tibouren 2015

It is 90% tibouren and 10% grenache, though Tibouren adorns the label (rules of history say you can’t make rose from 100% anything). Tibouren is very much the metier of Clos Cibonne. The estate was replanted off just five vines after phylloxera, and before the creation of the appellation. Stainless steel then sent to the old (115-year-old, 5000L) foudre barrels. Younger-ish vines and harvested a little earlier than the old vines rose version. There’s often flor present in these barrels too.
