The Clos Cibonne estate is wonderfully located between Toulon and Hyères, in the town of Pradet, very close to Cap de Carqueiranne. The domain name perpetuates the surname of Jean-Baptiste de Cibon, former owner of the premises. It was in the 1930s that the property turned towards an exclusive cultivation of vines under the leadership of André Roux, who had foreseen the wave of "rosé de Provence". This precursor made the choice of an original and not very widespread although typically Provençal grape variety, tibouren. He uprooted five hectares of old vines, except for the few very old grape varieties, which were jealously preserved, and whose precious grafts allowed the whole estate to be replanted little by little. André Roux added some Grenache, Cinsault and Syrah plants to it to qualify for the Côtes de Provence appellation. Today, even if we sometimes (but rarely) find a little tibouren in other Provençal wines, Clos Cibonne remains the great ambassador of this grape in France and undoubtedly in the world!
