“This reasonably priced, garnet-hued Tavel highlights mouthwatering blackberry and cassis flavors etched by spicy hints of burnt caramel and anise. Full-bodied and structured by fresh acidity and a kiss of tannins on the finish, it's a lovely year-round rose to enjoy well through the winter months.”

“A structured rose, packed with pomegranate and blood orange fruit flavors, which are carried by crunchy acidity and framed by tobacco and hot stone on the finish. Built for food—salmon or even roasted chicken. Delicious. Grenache, Syrah, Cinsault and Mourvedre.”
by Wine Spectator, JM, 2022.
Les Lauzeraies Tavel is the “Original Rosé”, before rosé was cool. Tavel is the Rhône Valley’s rosé-only appellation. These wines have nice grip and body so they can be drunk year-round and even benefiting from aging. Make no mistake however, this is still Rosé, meant to be chilled and enjoyed with a wide range of meals; it’s a great pick for Thanksgiving! A Grenache dominant blend of numerous grapes (including the white varieties Clairette and Picpoul), this wine undergoes a longer maceration than most rosé, up to 48 hours, which brings out that deeper character and color. Displaying a generous mouthfeel, excellent purity, lovely florals (violets, roses) and a light spice note, Les Lauzeraies shows great versatility and range.
A beautiful deep pink in color with distinct mineral aromas with hints of undergrowth. The palate is fruit-driven and delicate with hints of minerality and finishes with a gentle persistence.
Black Grenache (50%, softness and high aromatic potential) - Mourvèdre, old Carignans and Syrah (17%, color,spicy aromas and fullness) - Clairette (6%, floral aromas) - Picpoul and Bourboulenc (7%, flower aromas and liveliness) - Cinsault (20%, delicacy) - (15% and structure).
