Tavel is the most reknown Rosé wine in the world and often described as the “king of rosés – rosés of the kings”
This Côtes du Rhône rosé is a blend of Grenache, Cinsault and Syrah grapes.
The vines grow on clay limestone soils from the 2 banks of the Rhône river. With a Mediterranean climate renowned for its contrasts, they benefit from the summer heat and the Mistral wind.
Each grape variety is vinified individually. The grapes are de-stemmed and crushed followed by a low-temperature fermentation. Racking of clear juices and blocking of the malolactic fermentation. Blending of the different grape varieties takes place in December and bottled just after in order to capture all the freshness and juicy-fruit notes.
Beautiful rose-petal colour. Floral scents with aromas of raspberry and redcurrant. The palate is juicy and well balanced, the finish is fresh and vibrant with generous red-fruit notes.
It will pair nicely with a "parillada", cuttlefish "à la plancha", a couscous or bruschettas with dried tomatoes . Enjoy it cool, between 10 to 12°C.
Born during the 3rd century in Spain, Saint Vincent has been considered as the patron saint of winegrowers. Given that “Vincent” means “triumphant” in Latin, the choice of this name for our cuvée needs no further explanation !
