Tasting Notes

Rejoice Tavel! In a time when very high quality rosés line our shelves, when pink wines from Spain, the US, South Africa, Italy and all over the land of France are finally getting some much deserved attention in the press and from our customers, we must give Tavel its special due. This is the original rosé appellation. In fact, so good is the fabled rosé from Tavel, that by law no other sort of wine can call itself Tavel! Layers of wild strawberries collide with a spicy note, a dash of citrusy acidity and so much fruit and flower aroma, it is almost too much. But then, when paired with foods of the region--fish soups, black olives, rosemary scented meats and poultry, anything combining eggplant and tomatoes...well, it is not too much at all. No, it is darn near perfect. 50% Grenache, 20% Syrah, 20% Cinsault, 10% Mourvedre. 13.5% abv.

    They only make rose in Tavel so they must know what they're doing. This is great!

    Don't know if your feeling White wine or Red wine tonight? How about a Gorgeous Dry Rose from the classic region of Tavel France! A bit darker and richer in color and flavor, but dry and mineraly on the palate with a mouthwatering finish! You won't be able to sip on just one glass for long!

    This is one of the best 2011 french roses we have tasted so far. Full flavored and layered, it is a mouth watering summer sipper full of spice and strawberries!
    Top Value! Drink from 2012 to 2014

    50% Grenache, 20% Syrah, 20% Cinsault, 10% Mourvedre. From the original rose appellation, this juicy rose will not disappoint! Fresh raspberry, plum, strawberry and cassis. Great acid, well balanced- perfect with roasted chicken or grilled fish! 13.5%abv

    Our first Tavel in stock, and it is lovely. Classic in its richness. Wild strawberries and a touch of herb spices give this wine a perfect edge for pairing with a more substantial Mediterranean style fare.
