How's it taste?
Organic. Nuances is a 100% Mourvèdre micro-cuvée, crafted from specific low-yielding, old-vine plots (including fruit from the Domaine’s prized Bel Air parcel) with the idea of producing a wine of outstanding depth and the potential to mature in the bottle—as Bandol rosé once did (believe it or not). This wine’s maturation in the cellar was also considerably longer than the classic Pibarnon rosé. It offers an even more complex, potent and spicy style of Bandol rosé that could be sipped over several years, or enjoyed now, in the cooler months with richer food.  The grapes for the 2018 received seven days of skin contact and the juice was then bled saignée-style, without pressing. Fermentation and aging took place with natural yeasts in both Italian amphorae and a large, 30 hectolitre Stockinger foudre.
How was it made?
NUANCES Rosé was born out of our continuous tastings of Pibarnon's young and older vintage Rosés. In the past, we often had to launch a new vintage in mid-August with already more complex notes and a broad and fulfilling structure, knowing that a Classic Pibarnon Rosé can easily be drunk the following year and for years to come.So, this is how the idea for a Grand Rosé sprung up: a rosé that would be deliberately kept in the cellar during the first spring and the first summer and would then be launched in the autumn, to be served with white meats, autumn and winter dishes, whilst maintaining hints of the Mediterranean.
