It was hard to stop drinking this wine; it would impress your friends at a spring get-together and would be enjoyable to those who like either reds or whites. This elegant rose presents an inviting nose of mineral and cooling berry fruit; in the mouth had a pleasant initial acid bite which promptly opened into a glycerin-covered pulse of rich warm fruit and mineral with a hint of flowers. Finish lingers deliciously with a gentle sweet, oily, floral taste. Everything was well-balanced and nothing was extreme, and the wine seemed to be transmitting on all the important channels. Off-dry, medium acid, medium body, complex. Yum. Serve at 55 deg F.

The 2005 Tavel Rosé is one of my favorite summer quaffing wines, but it can only last a year and within two months of this report the 2006 will probably be hitting the marketplace. One of the advantages of the 2005 growing season and the cooler conditions is that there is terrific acidity not only in the reds but also the whites and rosés.

Vivid pink. Expressive bouquet evokes wild strawberry, cherry skin, dried rose and a deeper note of licorice. Juicy, penetrating red fruit flavors stain the palate, picking up a dusty note of talc on the back end. Deftly combines depth and vivacity and finishes with lingering red berry flavors and a refreshing kick of blood orange.

Ripe, with plump watermelon and cherry notes framed by a bright, stony edge. Long and juicy on the well-detailed finish. Drink now.

An astounding characterful roseacute;, the Mordoreacute;e Tavel has a hugely complex nose of cherry, carnation and strawberry set against a backdrop of herbes de Provence. Intensely flavorful in the mouth, this wine finishes on a long note of lemon zest and white cherries. An excellent foil for roast pork.

Ripe and very focused, featuring a deliciously pure beam of cherry and fleshy strawberry fruit, laced with hints of jasmine and cherry blossom. The finish is long and mouthwatering. Drink now.

A brilliant salmon color with a complex nose of flowers, cherries and cranberries. Round and full bodied, with a long-lasting finish. This is usually one of the finest rosé wines produced each year and the 2010 is the finest we have ever tasted from this producer.

Bold cherry color, with lots of ripe cherry and raspberry fruit on a lush frame. Great stony undertow stretches out the finish to let the fruit linger. Drink now.

Winemaker's Notes:

Tavel Rosé, once so popular, seems not to have benefited from the<br/>revitalised interest in Rosé wines in general, perhaps because it is<br/>deemed stylistically to be a little clumsy and even foursquare. The Delorme<br/>brothers produce two Rosé wines to dash such a perception, but not to<br/>loose sight of the features which brought the region and style popularity in<br/>the first place. <br/>Made from a tapestry of varieties (Grenache, Cinsault, Mourvèdre, Syrah,<br/>Bourboulenc and Clairette since you asked), the wine has no shortage of<br/>complexity. A rich rose in colour, the wine's aromatics continue the<br/>floral theme, adding notes of raspberry and youthful cherry. The palate is<br/>round and generous, with the red berried fruit to the fore; it will be a good<br/>match for white meat, terrines and even fusion cuisine. <br/>(Simon Field MW, BBR Buyer)
