The brilliant 2008 Tavel (50% Grenache, 30% Cinsault, 15% Clairette, and 5% Syrah) is a big-boned, brawny, dry rosé with plenty of flavor. It cuts a savory, heady feel across the palate. Enjoy it over the next 8-12 months.
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. I'd have liked a bit more vivacity but this will work well with grilled birds or fish.
Big, with very juicy watermelon, red currant and cherry notes laced with mineral and herb notes, followed by a long, fine finish. Drink now.
We insist you try this wine. Really. From the region of Tavel in France's Rhône Valley, famed for its delicious rosés, 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.
A ripe, mouthfilling style, displaying ebullient black cherry and red currant fruit backed by a lingering, spice-filled finish. This has power, but stays fresh. Drink now.
Tavel rosés are made in the tiny, sleepy village of the same name, less than 10 miles southwest and across the river from Châteauneuf-du-Pape. Nine Rhône grapes (both red and white) can be used in the winemaker'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.
A powerful and focused Rosé, with a big core of red cherry, raspberry and red currant fruit laced with spice and tobacco hints. A nice stony note weaves in on the finish, adding length and cut. Drink now.
