Chatea d’Aqueria Tavel 2017

14% abv

This wine is the classic salmon-pink color expected from a Tavel rosé. Subtle flowers and herbs follow an intense fragrance and flavors of red currant and strawberry. As far as rosé goes, it is bone dry, complex and full-bodied, and handles the robust flavors of the garlic rouille. The floral notes on the palate highlight the soup’s safron and fennel, and the wine’s crisp finish carries through the velvety texture of the veloute.

Tavel is widely considered to be the best rosé producing region in the world. It is the only AOC in France to produce only rosé wines, and they usually fetch a higher price than other rosés. Tavel is situated in the Gard district to the left of the Rhone River (called Right Bank of the Rhone). Tavel rosés often include indigenous white grape varietals such as bourboulenc, clairette and picpoul. These wines are best drunk young and cold.
