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.

What are your favorite roses and rose appellations?

I am not a professional wine taster, nor do I have any professional training in the wine trade. I am a wine enthusiast who has spent countless hours tasting wines of many different styles. My palate is not aligned with a single wine critic, and I call all wines "as I taste them". My site is a source of tasting notes and wine recommendations as well as warnings without conflict of interest. You'll just have to figure out how your palate aligns with mine. My palate generally tends to veer towards Old-World wines that put a premium on terroir and lovely balance and finesse, rather than raw power...please keep that in mind as you read my notes.
