2012CibonneRose2012 Cibonne, Tentations Rose, Cotes de Provence, France.
Seriously fun Rose from Cibonne, the 2012 Cibonne Tentations Rose Cotes de Provence is briskly dry and mineral laced with loads of chalky notes and vibrant citrus fruit with hints of wild strawberry, watermelon and red peach as well. This wine is full of energy and tangy layers making it a great brunch companion and super picnic wine, it is lovely and vivid throughout with hints of sea breeze and saline making your mouth water and refreshingly crisp. It doesn’t get much better than this, and this lively vintage is near perfect for warm afternoon enjoyment, this is pure pleasure, sunshine in a bottle. Oh to be in the south of Franceā€¦ Don’t miss this great Rose if you see it, it is a very complete wine and delightful, drink over the next 6 months to a year.
