  • TASTING NOTE: Layered, deeply hewn rosé with a level of texture and intensity that you rarely see in the category. Cassis, rosemary, wild thyme and charcuterie spring from the glass, and the wine graces the palate with vibrant savoury grip and bright, pithy freshness. 
  • ABOUT THE WINE: The Nuances is held back for nearly two years after it is bottled, to reflect the ageing potential of this distinct rosé. Grapes received seven days of skin contact and the juice was then bled saignée-style, without pressing. Fermentation and aging took place with natural yeasts in both Italian amphorae and a large, 30 hectolitre Stockinger foudre.
  • ABOUT THE PRODUCER: The vineyards of Château de Pibarnon create a natural amphitheatre, sitting atop La Colline du Télégraphe at a height of 300m, staring directly out at the sparkling Mediterranean bay of La Ciotat. This is one of the few terroirs that can ripen and sculpt the surly Mourvèdre into the kind of fine, supple and fragrant wine that Pibarnon is famous for. It’s not easy to pinpoint exactly what makes these wines so distinctive. There’s the lofty elevation of the Pibarnon vineyard, which allows for a longer, slow ripening period, and there is the unique, ancient fossil-rich limestone, clay and blue marl soils that bring a seamless web of tannins into play. The high level of Mourvèdre is another major difference, with most Bandol wines having much more Grenache in the blends. Whatever the reasons, these are ravishing, unique wines and should be counted among the very best in Southern France. Of course, the certified organic—and now biodynamic—viticulture, and the careful, minimal winemaking helps as well. The approach in the cellar includes wild yeast fermentation, neutral, large-format oak and amphora vessels for fermentation and aging, and minimal sulphur usage. These factors (terroir and culture) result in a distinctively elegant style of Bandol, one that has tamed the rusticity that Mourvèdre is certainly capable of producing.
