Clos Cibonne is a 15 hectare estate about 800 meters from the Mediterranean that dates back to 1797 when the Roux Family purchased it from Jean Baptiste de Cibon, captain of the royal marines of Louis XVI.. The Domaine is now owned and run by André Roux’s granddaughter, Brigitte, and her husband, Claude Deforge. Clos Cibonne is planted to Tibouren, a vine that produces sweet and thin skinned grapes of uneven sizes that also ripen unevenly. In fact some unripe grapes are left in the press to add spice and acidity to the resultant wine. This wine is made from the oldest plots in their vineyards, with vines dating back to the 1960s..Very spicy and somewhat oxidative, showing red berries such as cherries, strawberries and red currants, but with a delicate, elegant body with not too much tannin.
