    Varietal: Rosé

    Item no. 108665

    Winemaker's Notes:

    Situated across the Rhône River from Chateauneuf-du-Pape, the vineyards of Tavel produce France's finest rosé wine. Grenache and Cinsault dominate the blend, with smaller amounts of Syrah and Mourvedre, and occasionally white grapes such as Clairette and Bourbolenc.

    Marcel Guigal buys selectively from several estates, finishing and bottling the wine in his cellars in Ampuis. Full-bodied and dry with flavors of strawberries and wild-fruits, and a refreshing almond-bitterness in the finish, Tavel is a perfect apéritif and a superb companion to informal meals and spicy foods.

    Blend: 50% Grenache, 30% Consault, 10% Clairette, 5% Syrah, 5% Other Grapes

    Critical Acclaim:

    It is hard to say anything produced by Marcel and Philippe Guigal is under the consumer radar, but I do believe their roses are exceptional and compete with the best estate-bottled roses in southern France. If you want some tannin, more body, and even deeper flavors, check out the 2009 Tavel. It has a medium salmon color, a remarkable flavor profile, and plenty of heady raspberry and strawberry fruit. It is dry, rich, and probably capable of lasting a couple of years, although I would opt for drinking it in its first 12 months of life.
