Clos Cibonne has long championed the native Provençal variety Tibouren, and today it still remains at the heart of the estate, with a series of Rosé and red expressions focused around the variety. In fact, the name Clos Cibonne has become so synonymous with the Tibouren that the A.O.C has even granted them special permission to list the grape on their labels.
Ownership of the property dates back to 1797, when the Roux family purchased it from Jean Baptiste de Cibon, captain of the royal marines of Louis XVI. Later in the 1930s, André Roux was responsible for modernising the winery, with Brigette and Claude Deforge, his grand-daughter and her husband; now leading the estate since the late 1990s. All the hard work has been fruitful—Clos Cibonne has since been promoted to one of the 18 Cru Classés in Côtes de Provence.
This bundle offers an intimate glimpse into their workings; a delightful treat with such a unique grape variety that challenges the conventions of classic Provence.
