This wine is a blend of Viognier, Roussane, Marsanne, Grenache Blanc, Picpoul, Bourboulenc and Clairette. Clear and light lemon colour. Young and intense on the nose, it is a complex mix of almond, caramelised sugar and there is a good presence of the alcohol. (14%) 25% of the wine is fermented in oak barrel, which gives a lively and complex palate of white peach, violette and apricot. The toasted wood flavours are well integrated and give a round finish.

    Tested at 70 deg F on well-aired bottle (3 hrs). Attractive nose of animal fur, tar, meaty-gamey notes, sweet warm spices (e.g. ginger), red and darker fruit. In the mouth same taste, a bit thinnish but still intense with flavors listed for the nose. Finish was delightful, almost ethereal with licorice herb and wood "surfing away" on a wave of warmth (probably from the alcohol). Dry to off dry. Body medium, acid medium, tannin medium.

    Nice fruit, raspberries with a touch of tobacco. Nice structure, but very young and bright.

    Truthfully, I think the 2014 Tavel La Dame Rousse is every bit as profound as the more expensive Reine des Bois cuvee, and the entry level Cotes du Rhone rosé, while made in a slightly more fresh style, is just as good as well. Sporting similar notes of framboise, orange blossom, white flowers and strawberries, it’s a bigger, rich release that might lack a touch of the finesse and elegance found in the Reine des Bois, yet makes up for it with fabulous intensity, depth and length, while still staying clean, classy and pure. It’s an incredible, full-bodied, beautiful rosé that’s not for those looking for simple and quaffable.

    Vivid pink. Ripe, lucid red berry and floral scents are complicated by hints of candied ginger and blond tobacco. Smooth and weighty on the palate, offering intense raspberry and bitter cherry flavors and a hint of tangerine. Clings with very good intensity on the finish, which features suave floral and candied citrus qualities.

    Almost as good and a fabulous effort, the 2013 Tavel Rosé La Dame Rousse is upfront and perfumed, with citrus blossom, crushed roses and wild strawberry-like aromas and flavors. Medium-bodied, layered and seamless, with perfectly integrated acidity, it’s a knockout rosé to enjoy over the coming year or two as well. Don’t miss these two superb rosés.

    Bright orange-pink. High-pitched red berry and citrus zest scents show very good clarity and a hint of potpourri. Clean, stony and precise, with dense redcurrant and bitter cherry flavors and a bright pink grapefruit nuance. Finishes with excellent energy and lift, leaving a red berry skin note behind.
