What the Critics say
'Light orange-pink. Vibrant and sharply focused on the nose, displaying intense tangerine, white peach and strawberry scents complicated by suave floral and mineral flourishes. Shows impressive clarity and stony cut to the juicy citrus and red fruit flavors, which deepen steadily on the back half. The floral note comes back strong on a very long, penetrating finish that shows highly appealing silkiness and stony lift.'
Another cracking release from this organic benchmark. Pibarnon's distinctive Mourvèdre and Cinsault blend (60/40) is drawn from the estate's stunning amphitheatre of terraces, or restanques, set amid the pine-covered hilltop of La Colline du Télégraphe. This is Bandol's highest vineyard (at 300-metres above the Baie de Bandol), enjoying the freshness and cool nights of the altitude as well as the moderating sea breezes.
