An Excellent Vintage
Château de Pibarnon
> Bandol 2014 Rosé
With its style and habitual panache, the Château reveals its latest rosé : a harmonious vintage.
Managed for 15 years by Eric de Saint Victor, Chateau de Pibarnon is a paradise between sky and sea translating with great subtlety the famous Bandol terroir.
Complex and expertly prepared the latest vintage of the Chateau is built like an athlete poxerful ans flexible.
Mourvèdre makes up for a substantial part of the blend (65%) and this complemented by cinsault for the body and fruit. The two are blended before fermentation of more than 25 days. Its then aged for 6 months.
The wine opens with a powerful aroma of citrus fruits, small red fruits, seed fruits and finally sweet spices like liquorice. The ample and silky flavour is balanced with elegant body ans mineral freshness, evolving with dynamism with a long and slightly spicy aftertaste.
This gastronomic rosé is a wonderful aperitif or may accompany such dishes as grilled mullets, an aioli of cod or with meat in sauce. its structure also complements Thai or Chinese cuisine.
