 Château de Pibarnon
On this exceptional local soil in Bandol, the Saint Victor family has been leading a human adventure for more than 30 years, enabling Pibarnon to be listed among some of the greatest wines of France.  The origin of the refinement and elegance of Pibarnon wines lies in its captivating site overlooking the Mediterranean, where the vines, planted on restanques (traditional Provençal dry-stone retaining walls) up to 300 meters above sea level, live in perfect symbiosis with a carefully preserved ecosystem and an exceptional local soil. 
Pibarnon Blanc '16 (#58-11)
$0.00

Direct pressing and cold settling. Winemaking in vats with a piece of wood, a traditional method, slow fermentation. The 2015 vintage has a beautiful and clean freshness, with some minerality! The nose has light aromas of white, dried fruits, then a green freshness of lime and fennel. Fruity flavors round it all off slightly and give it an overall beautifully gourmand note. Elegance and a lot of balance! 

Grapes: 45% Clairette, 30% Bourboulenc, 25% various local grapes

Pibarnon Nuances Rosé 2015 (#58-14)
$0.00

Production is quite small as this is an exceptional rosé. The best soils are chosen with Bandol yields of less than 35 hl /ha. Natural yeasts are used and a good quality wine-­making temperature of 21/23°C (70-74F) is used to extract aromas of the grape variety. Wine is bottled in late April. This is a classic Pibarnon rosé that may be enjoyed this year and for years to come.

Grapes: Mourvèdre 100%

Pibarnon Restanques 2014 (#58-23)
$0.00

The grapes are put into tanks by gravity without using any pumps in order to keep the grapes intact. Traditional vinification is in stainless steel tanks with total de-stemming and daily punching over of the cap for better extraction of aroma and fine tannins from the grape skins. Long fermentation (25 days) with ageing for 18 months. One part goes into large new oak casks from the "massif central” in France and Austria (Stockinger), and another part goes into small oak barrels.

Grapes:  Mourvèdre 70%, Grenache 30%

Pibarnon Rosé '17 (#58-18)
$0.00

The Cinsault is pressed directly. It brings fat and fruit to the blend. The saignée method (drop of juice) and pressing is used on the Mourvèdre. It gives a good structure, freshness and complexity. The two varieties are blended before fermentation. Long fermentation (25/30 days) in stainless steel vats. Controlled temperature at an average of 22 °C. Aged in vats for 6 months to preserve the freshness of the aromas. Some notes of citrus but also ripe fruits explode before revealing licorice, ever-present thanks to Mourvèdre. A mouth full of freshness and body, amplified by the sap and fruit, viscosity and spices.

Grapes: 65% Mourvèdre, 35% Cinsault

Pibarnon Rouge '13 (#58-16)
$0.00

In 2012, a big part of the harvest was vinified with complete grapes. The maturity and the concentration were very good, so it was just necessary to wait for the extraction. Aging in big oak vats from Burgundy and Austria. The origin and age of each barrel is chosen to store each wine. This wine is very expressive and "explosive”, with a lot of red and black fruits, a nice spice, but without hardness. In bottles since the summer of 2013, it gives a lot of seduction with much density, softness, but always with this famous Mourvedre's character!


Grapes: 90% Mourvèdre, 10% Grenache
