NEW FRESH RELEASE!

"Brilliant orange-pink. Mineral- and spice-inflected raspberry and blood orange aromas are complemented by a suave lavender nuance. Smooth and focused on the palate, offering concentrated red berry and citrus fruit flavors braced by a spine of juicy acidity. Shows excellent tenacity on the mineral-tinged finish, which leaves a hint of candied flowers behind. All stainless steel." (VM)

"This impeccably run estate makes great wines from throughout the Rhône Valley, and their rosés are always terrific. The 2019 Tavel Le Crétacé has a complex bouquet of wild strawberries, cherry blossoms, and spring flowers. This carries to a medium-bodied Tavel that has terrific overall balance, a clean, refreshing texture, and a crisp finish. It’s a richer, balanced, dry rosé geared for the dinner table. I’d be happy to have it on my table any time over the coming 6-12 months." (JD)
