2020 Tavel “La Combe des Rieu”

Gaël Petit
Discount Eligible $38.00
SOLD OUT

This ruby-colored southern Rhône Valley rosé is from Tavel, the only appellation devoted exclusively to rosé production. Deep and complex, it could be treated like a red and described similarly: black cherry, tart cranberry, woodsy spice. But the texture of La Combe Des Rieu is distinctly more delicate and thirst-quenching in a way that a red (with more tannin) could never imitate. Crushed strawberry and wet stone on the palate—I love to pair it with extra-dry saucisson and creamy cheeses, or, for the main course, try it with pork tenderloin on a bed of warm polenta.

Vintage Chart

Trust the great winemakers, trust the great vineyards. Your wine merchant might even be trustworthy. In the long run, that vintage strip may be the least important guide to quality on your bottle of wine.—Kermit Lynch
