The gorgeous strawberry/kirsch-laden 2007 Tavel is full and very expressive. A total hedonistic turn-on, this wine should drink splendidly well for 10ndash;12 more months.
This dry roseacute; is a blend of Grenache, Cinsault, Clairette, and Syrah. Red wine lovers will appreciate the complexity of flavors including Provencal flowers, herbs, and a touch of whole grain mustard. At 14% alcohol it is not a lightweight, but the Grenache definitely shows through with a lot of fruit, almost like creamy bubble gum. Summer fare such as fried chicken and potato salad will shine alongside this wine. No matter your preference for red or white, give this a try, well-chilled, and realize that wine is for all of us.
Perhaps the finest dry roseacute; wersquo;ve ever tasted, this onersquo;s 50% Grenache, 30% Cinsault, 15% Clairette and 5% Syrah. Long and ripe, with bracing acidity that carries the long finish.
Deep, vivid pink. Deeply scented bouquet of raspberry and cherry, with a hint of dried lavender adding interest. Broad, fleshy red fruit flavors are a tad jammy and gain power with air. A rich style, and better suited for service with food than without. Irsquo;d have liked a bit more vivacity but this will work well with grilled birds or fish.
Tavel is the most renowned roseacute; of France, and you should not be deceived by its pink color! This is a dry wine with robust, spicy, berry flavors. Pasta with pesto and warm summer evening are the perfect companions to this jewel from Provence.
We insist you try this wine. Really. From the region of Tavel in Francersquo;s Rhocirc;ne Valley, famed for its delicious roseacute;s, comes a top-quality blend of mainly Grenache and Cinsault. Herbal notes and dry grass on the nose, crisp minerality along with bright watermelon and strawberry on the palate, and a strong, fruity finish. Excellent value from a top producer.
Tavel roseacute;s are made in the tiny, sleepy village of the same name, less than 10 miles southwest and across the river from Chacirc;teauneuf-du-Pape. Nine Rhocirc;ne grapes (both red and white) can be used in the winemakerrsquo;s blend. Grenache and Cinsault being the primary grapes used. Despite its pretty ruby color, this is a wine that is rugged, robust and spicy. Incredibly fresh and bright, it has flavors of raspberries, cherries and wild herbs. Bone dry, it has an appealing roughness, an edge that makes it perfect for washing down dishes laden with garlic, olive oil and fresh herbs.
