The Tavel region in the southern Rhone is devoted exclusively to producing rosé wines, and what wines they are. The area lies just to the north west of Avignon and combines a hot dry climate (which means ripe grapes) with stony well drained, soils (which means strong root systems). The wines produced here are known for their slightly darker color than many other rosés, which comes from longer contact with the grape skins during fermentation.
Tasting: Pink dress like raspberry, expressive nose with notes of little red berries. On the palate, the wine is very balanced and in line with the nose. The palate is full with a long length. Good acidity provides a tense finale. Beautiful complexity, fine, fresh, fruity and elegant Tavel.
