  • Appellation: Bandol
  • Domain: Château Pibarnon

The Nuances rosé was born following tastings of young and old vintages of rosés from the château. In the past, the De St-Victor family often launched a rosé "after everyone else". This is how the idea of a rosé that would remain in the cellar during the first spring and summer and only be launched in the autumn came about. It presents notes of bramble, stone fruits, some spices and liquorice. On the palate, it develops a long, sappy, full and sapid structure. A great wine, gastronomic.

Eric de St-Victor has chosen his best terroirs, with Bandolais yields (for the record, less than 35 hl/ha). Indigenous yeasts, good vinification temperature (21/23°), to extract the aromas of the grape variety, not fermented. Late bottling, mid-June. The wine is available for sale in early October.


To think of a great rosé is also to think of vinification and maturation, in this case in the same container. A mixed choice was made: one part in 30 hl Franz Stockinger tuns, which makes very little impression, but provides the necessary oxygen; one part in sandstone jars, a noble and not very porous earth which gives brilliance, tension and purity, while remaining perfectly neutral.

Suggestions for accompaniment

It is made to accompany white meats, autumn and winter dishes, while keeping Mediterranean nuances.

At the age of 50, Eric de Saint-Victor's parents, Henri and Catherine, fell in love with Pibarnon, at the time a small Bandolais estate of 3.5 hectares run by a man from the Italian Piedmont. We are in 1978 and the work that awaits the couple is not small. They had to remodel the vineyard, extend it, consolidate the terraces and perpetuate the cultivation of Mourvèdre plants anchored in the hard limestone. Let's remember that at that time, the Provence of wine was a bit like the Far West. Nearly 40 years later, the estate covers almost 50 hectares, half of which are vineyards, divided into multiple restanques (terraces) which form an aesthetic circus testifying to a beautiful stubbornness of civilisation. They cover the hillside on all sides, the furthest being one or two kilometres away. In the early 1990s, Eric de Saint-Victor joined his parents on the property, refining the tight but free style they had developed. After having somewhat abandoned the whole crop during the 2000s, he has been working more with the "rafle" in recent vintages, discussions with great Burgundian winemakers having no doubt contributed to this. The maturing process is still traditional, mainly in large oak tuns.
