Tavel

Appellation d'origine protégée

Tavel is the most reknown Rosé wine in the world and often described as the “king of rosés – rosés of the kings”.

The maturity of the grapes arrived in early September, which is a «normal» starting date of harvest. The weather was characterized by important storms in September, but Tavel appellation was finally spared by these «Cevennes episodes». 2014 therefore offers balanced Tavel wines in a mineral style with a nice long and spicy finish.

Grape Varieties: 

Majority of Grenache, Syrah and Cinsault. Calcareous soils covered with red clay and
pebbles.

Winemaking: 

Grapes are vinified separately at 14°C in tank. Vinification is made partly by bleeding (saignée) with a 12-hour maceration and partly by direct pressing. The wine is aged 6 months in tank before bottling.

Tasting notes: 

Deep dark pink robe. Smooth and tasty nose with notes of red fruit (crushed/ stewed strawberry). The palate is generous and supple with fruity and spicy flavors on the finish.

Service & food pairing suggestions: 

Serve chilled, between 10 and 12°C, now or within 2 years of age, with a «sunny» cuisine such as paella, chili con carne, bouillabaisse or exotic dishes.

Saint Ferreolus was the 5th bishop of Uzès in the Gard region of France. Our Tavel cuvée, full of harmony and finesse, pays tribute to him.
