2018 Cave de Tavel "Cuvée Royale" Tavel Rose

SKU #1424054 90 points Wine Enthusiast

 Hints of crisp blackberry, bramble and granite introduce this deeply hued, robust rosé. Dry and full bodied in style, it balances intensely fruit-forward black-cherry and plum flavors against delicate earth tones and hints of burnt sugar and caramel. This bold pink for lovers of red wine should drink well through 2021.(AI)  (7/2019)

This is one of my favorite rosé offerings of this season. It has a deep pink color that is typical from Tavel. Full bodied and juicy, it is packed full of red berry flavors. The Cuvée Royale is also a dry wine and will go well alone, or with many foods like fish, chicken, and salads.

Additional Information:

Varietal:

Rhone Blends

Country:

France

- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.
Sub-Region:

Rhone

- Legendary wine-producing region in southeast France. Stereotypically speaking, Rhone wines are high in alcohol, and the majority produced is red. The northern Rhone is best known for outstanding 100% Syrah wines from areas such as Cote Rotie and Hermitage, as well as for fabulous white wines from Condrieu (where Viognier is king). In the southern Rhone, look for spicy, full-bodied wines that are blends of Grenache, Syrah, and other varietals coming from appellations such as Chateauneuf du Pape, Gigondas, or Rasteau. Wines labeled as Cote du Rhone or Cotes du Rhone Village (a cut above generic Cotes du Rhone) are frequently found here in the US because they often represent some of the best values on the market.
