Winemaker 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

RP 92
The Wine Advocate

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.

Prieure de Montezargues
Near Tavel, concealed by a forest of Holm oaks and Scots pine, and protected from the Mistral by the Montagne Noire ("Black Mountain"), Montezargues Priory quietly ripens its grapes on sandy slopes that run down to Pujaut Pond.

Eight varieties flourish in the Provencal sunshine: Grenache Noir and Grenache Blanc, Cinsault, Syrah, Mourvedre, Carignan, Clairette and Bourboulenc.
