Our comment

“The premier rosé of France, very full, from a great vintage, redolent of violets and tobacco plants in early evening. A great mouthful of fruits and summer flowers. Perfect with fish, chicken, grilled shops or paella.” - by K. STEVENS M.W.

The 2013 Tavel has classic raspberry, cherries, spring flowers and underbrush notes to go with a medium-bodied, elegant and fresh feel on the palate. Jeb Dunnuck.

Score : 90

Aromas of spices, earth and dried strawberries follow through to a full body, lots of fruit and a tea and a sliced-lemon aftertaste. A classic rosé. Drink now. James Suckling.

 

Gault & Millau

Score : 15/20

La robe scintille d'un rose fuchsia laissant présager quelques effets de fumé minéral, amande et sureau discret. Les effluves des galets de Tavel enrobent les fruits rougeoyants bien mûrs allongeant une bouche gourmande et franche en finale.
