91 points - Antonio Galloni
Brilliant orange-pink. Mineral-tinged red berry, citrus fruit and lavender aromas are complemented by a deeper nectarine quality. Sappy and seamless on the palate, offering juicy pit fruit and red berry flavors and a hint of blood orange. Smooths out and expands on the long, focused finish, which leaves a suave floral note behind.
-- Josh Raynolds
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.
