Les Lauzeraies 'Tavel' Rose 2022
Wine Advocate 90
The 2022 Tavel Les Lauzeraies is another attractive Tavel from the local cave cooperative. A bit stonier and garrigue-scented than many of the other cuves, it's medium to full-bodied, fully dry and almost savory in style, with the merest hints of red berries and citrus on the finish.

Wine Spectator 90
A well-crafted version, with a bitter, pithy streak of acidity cutting through the richness. Reveals red licorice, cherry and plum flavors that are fleshy and broad, with subtle fine-grained tannins providing a ballast. The warm finish is adorned with dried flower petal and shaved iron details. Grenache, Syrah, Cinsault and Mourvedre.

Description
Les Lauzeraies Tavel is the Original Ros, before ros was cool. Tavel is the Rhne Valleys ros-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 Ros, meant to be chilled and enjoyed with a wide range of meals; its 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 ros, 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.

Tasting notes
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.
