Another Tavel rose for me and I’m beginning to really like these Tavel roses. This one is a dark rose color for sure. Great and refreshing strawberry and raspberry nose that has a hint of mint to it. Refreshing acidity on the palate with quite a bit of grip for a rose. Not a whimpy rose at all. Finishes well and makes for a great summer time quaffer. I don’t think it’s as good as the Canto Perdrix, but it is very nice, still.
It’s amazing that Tavel seems to not get a lot of press despite being seemingly one of the best (if not the best) rose appellations in France. And the prices are extremely reasonable.
