Region: Provence, Bandol - France
Grape: 100% Mourvedre
Tasting notes: To taste an Vieux Marc, choose "chimney" cognac glasses, instead of the classical round ones. This Marc is not only elegant, but really interesting thanks to its strength. The nose is quite suave, with complex aromas of raisins, plum, prune, and a hint of liquorice. A powerful and ample mouth, followed by a long and elegant final.
Origin: Made from de-stemmed Mourvedre marcs. At the end of the vinification, when the wine is racked-off, the red marcs, that come out of the press, are de-stemmed and ensiled in tanks sheltered from the air.
About the winery: The breathtaking beauty of the Pibarnon vineyard and the orginality 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.
