WHAT THE CRITICS ARE SAYING
Blend of 90% Mourvèdre and 10% Grenache.
“Having understood perfectly the soul of this exceptional terroir, Henri de Saint-Victor completely remade Chateau de Pibarnon and in doing so created a grand classic in Bandol, with a profundity and balance without equal in Provence….”Bettane and Desseauve, Classification of the Best Wines of France, 2003
The breathtaking beauty of the Pibarnon vineyard and the originality of its exceptional terroir are gathered in the majesty of its wines.
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 metres above sea level, live in perfect symbiosis with a carefully preserved ecosystem and an exceptional local soil. Those factors on their own would justify the estate's classification as a "clos” or a "climate”, like the great wines of Burgundy.
Varieties: Mourvedre, Cinsault
Goes perfectly well with colourful and inventive dishes full of sweet and rare spices. Asian cuisine, raw fish, garlic and white meat also go well together.
