Such a bewitching colour in the glass, like stained glass at sunset. Sensuous peach, rockmelon, grapefruit and pretty florals. Lots of blood orange and lavender in the palate. Deep! So much energy. Seaside and seafood, miam. Or maybe even with some cured meats? 60% Mourvedre and the rest Cinsault. Pibarnon stands out in Bandol for its lofty, mountainous views of the Mediterranean and for using a lot of Mourvedre in their wines. Current owner Eric de Saint-Victor took over Chateau de Pibarnon in 1975. They are the gold standard in premium wines from the regions. Collectors rejoice!
