Another terrific Tavel from a top Rhone producer. Limited availability in Texas. Approx 4-6 million bottles annually are produced by the entire Tavel AOC, which is less some single bottlings of Provence Rosé (e.g. Whispering Angel). 2018 is bit riper than our favorite 2014 release, but this could be due to the blend this year: 60% Grenache, 10% Cinsault, 10% Mourvedre, 10% Syrah, 5% Bourboulenc and 5% ClairetteABV 14.5% ABV, no oak used. Would be nice to try this producer's other two rosés. Red plum, bright cherry, white flowers, and garrigue.

This entry-level bottling showcases intense, deeply concentrated red berry, citrus fruit and floral qualities, with a firm mineral underpinning. A powerful pink wine, the 2018 can handle the richest, and most strongly seasoned food with ease. It will also age, if you can resist temptation. $25.00 (Josh Raynolds, Vinous, July 2019)
