E. Gugial Tavel Rosé 2019 (91 JD)
“The 2019 Tavel offers everything you could want from a Tavel. Medium to full-bodied, it has wonderful cherry and raspberry fruits, a rounded, nicely texture mouthfeel, and a fresh, dry finish that keeps you coming back for another sip. Not your simple, quaffable Cotes de Provence rosé, this is geared for the dinner table and would be awesome with tapas.”
The Guigal family has been working for decades in Tavel, and today specifically works with 6 growers to produce the traditional style of rosé the region is known for deep fruit, full of spice you find in the reds of the area, structured, and substantial enough to age. Thank goodness this appellation across the river from Châteauneuf-du-Pape, 100% dedicated to rosé, still produces wines of this full-bodied style!
