    Winemaker's Notes:

    In the glass, Prieure de Montezargues Tavel Rose is a pretty pale pink with violet glints. The nose is intense with notes of grapefruit, pear and red fruits: cherry and raspberry. A crisp mouth; round, full bodied, a nice balance and a velvety feel. The finish is long with hints of peach and red fruit.

    Blend: 55% Grenaches (red and white), 30%, Cinsault, 13% Clairette, 2% Others (Syrah, Mourvedre, Carignan, Bourboulenc)

    Critical Acclaim:

    A blend of 50% Grenache, 35% Cinsault, and the rest the white grape Clairette, the 2011 Rose can fill a small room with its aromas of raspberries, spring flowers, roasted herbs and strawberries. A gorgeously dry, medium to full-bodied rose, it is a fabulous foil for hot, humid weather, Chinese dishes, or even sushi and a brilliant example of just what terrific quality is available from a top estate in this region. Prieure de Montezargues is one of only about 30 independent growers in the large (over 2,000-acre) appellation of Tavel, where most of the production is dominated by cooperatives.
