2021 Tavel Rosé

Château de Trinquevedel
Discount Eligible $20.00
SOLD OUT

Surrounded by red wine districts like Châteauneuf-du-Pape, Vacqueyras, and Lirac, Tavel is the only AOC in the southern Rhône dedicated entirely to rosé production. And what a rosé it is! Famously lauded by Ernest Hemingway, who declared it his favorite wine, and a staple on the table of at least two French kings, Tavel takes its pink wine seriously.
      Unlike many rosés, which use second-class fruit not deemed suitable for reds, the raw material here is picked exclusively for the purpose of creating a top-class rosé. Guillaume Demoulin, a fourth-generation vigneron, crafts Trinquevedel’s Tavel—a blend dominated by Grenache—by way of a skin maceration at cold temperature lasting up to two days, depending on the vintage. This process draws out aromatics of wild strawberry and thyme, while achieving a seductive deep pink color.
      Delightful with a bowl of olives in the summer, this no-nonsense rosé also has the structure to stand up to anything off the barbecue.
