Tavel

Situated across the Rhône River from Chateauneuf-du-Pape, the vineyards of Tavel produce France’s finest rosé wine. Grenache and Cinsault dominate the blend, with smaller amounts of Syrah and Mourvedre, and occasionally white grapes such as Clairette and Bourbolenc. Marcel Guigal buys selectively from several estates, finishing and bottling the wine in his cellars in Ampuis. Full-bodied and dry with flavors of strawberries and wild-fruits, and a refreshing almond-bitterness in the finish, Tavel is a perfect apéritif and a superb companion to informal meals and spicy foods. Composed of Grenache (50%), Cinsault (30%), Clairette (10%), Syrah (5%), and others (5%).
