Produced in Tavel, the heart of the Rhone Valley’s rosé production, this Cotes-du-Rhone rosé is crafted from 30+ year old vineyards planted in soils rich with calcareous sandstone and positioned on gently undulating slopes for optimal sun exposure.

Harvest Note
The 2019 harvest started off with a mild mild winter, which helped kickstart vine development earlier than usual, cooler conditions in April and May slowed this down. June brought very hot weather which caused some stress on the fruit and foliage. The hottest part of the summer was bookended by major rain which helped stave off heat stress for the most part. Overall the harvest was a good size and produced a healthy crop.
Tasting Note
This pale pink rosé has a lot of tangerine, floral nuances and fresh zesty characters to offer. The mouth is round and seamless on the palate. The finish has a very good vivacity and lead to a very fruity, juicy and energetic cut.
Food Pairing
Ideal for picnic in the sun, grilled fish, spaghetti with tomatoe sauce.

About the Grape

Ripe and meaty over elegant, with rose and almond notes, Cinsault’s relatively low tannins typically relegate it to blends with other varieties, as with Châteauneuf-du-Pape and Tavel Rosé.
Grenache is loaded with dense, lusty aromas and flavors of black cherry, blackcurrant, jam, pepper and licorice, with a palate-coating texture and high alcohol.
Mourvèdre makes big, meaty, rustic wines high in alcohol, acidity and tannin, with moderate black fruit characters. Shows aromas and flavors of wild Provençal herbs, leather, mushrooms and barnyard.
Grenache Blanc
This grape can produce an attractive, fleshy, generously fruity wine with a fragrance of flowers and dill.
