Winemaker Notes

The complex fruity, floral and liquorice hints dominate the nose. Overtones of citrus fruit are also present, particularly pink grapefruit with its delicate aromas. The palate is rich and silky, with a refreshing, magnificent finish. This is a wine of good structure, texture and body. It accompanies Mediterranean cuisine, colorful, inventive, with rare and subtle spices. A rosé for all 4 seasons, aired, refreshing and fruity the first months; then more mineral, complex, long and structured afterwards.

A gastronomic wine. Red mullet, fish roe, saffron, Iberico Bellota ham, anchoïade, roquefort, rocket salad, some refined and delicate delicacies. Asian flavors, raw fish, garlic, some white meats will also accompany the wine harmoniously.

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
V 92
Vinous

Glistening orange. Pungent cherry, blood orange and floral scents, along with suggestions of succulent herbs and chalky minerals. Weighty red berry, citrus fruit and candied lavender flavors show sharp delineation and pick up a deeper peach note with aeration. Silky and broad on the impressively long finish, which leaves a refreshingly bitter orange pith note behind.

W&S 92
Wine & Spirits

Pibarnon sits on a high hill in Bandol, looking out toward the Mediterranean. Under the strong sun, the place is both warm and breezy—like this wine, which is rich but not heavy, its strawberry jam flavors refreshed by ocean-air scents. Opulent and old-world in feel, this is built for drinking with strongly flavored dishes, like grilled sardines and tapenade.

Chateau de Pibarnon Winemaker- Eric de Saint Victor Winery Image

The source of the refinement and elegance of Chateau de Pibarnon's wines lies in the estate's captivating vineyards, which overlook the Mediterranean Sea in the appellation of Bandol, in Provence. 

A thick-skinned black grape, Mourvèdre has found its favourite soils in the sunny Bandol appellation. Some 3,000 hours of sunshine a year perfectly suit this slow-ripening grape. Rarely found in other cooler French vineyards, Mourvèdre brings harmony, elegance and an amazing ageing capacity to the red and rosé wines of sunny Bandol.

The Bandol region was essentially undiscovered when Catherine and Henri de Saint Victor purchased Pibarnon in the late 1970s. Recognizing the region’s potential, this visionary couple worked tirelessly for some 30 years, landscaping and crafting ever better wines. 

By the 1990s, Pibarnon was making the region’s top red and rosé wines, a status today maintained under their son, Eric de Saint Victor, today the estate's winemaker.

Provence’s leader in concentrated and age-worthy red wines, Bandol is home to the dense, deep and earthy Mourvèdre grape. Like Châteauneuf-du-Pape, Bandol produces characterful reds that, while approachable in their youth, are typically designed for the cellar.

Given its coastal, Provencal situation, Bandol also naturally produces an assortment of charming, aromatic rosés made of Mourvèdre, Grenache and Cinsault.

Whether it’s playful and fun or savory and serious, most rosé today is not your grandmother’s White Zinfandel, though that category remains strong. Pink wine has recently become quite trendy, and this time around it’s commonly quite dry. Since the pigment in red wines comes from keeping fermenting juice in contact with the grape skins for an extended period, it follows that a pink wine can be made using just a brief period of skin contact—usually just a couple of days. The resulting color depends on grape variety and winemaking style, ranging from pale salmon to deep magenta.
