Winemaker's Notes

#64 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2012

The Domaine Lafond Tavel is characterized by a lovely pure tender pink color. The predominating aromas are complex: red and white fruit associated with floral notes. With time, these fruity aromas will evolve toward more mellow notes with a touch of spice and stone fruits, and the colour will take on amber tints. As of its first year, it disposes of all the necessary aromas to be appreciated, but it also has an exceptional aging potential.

Critical Acclaim

"This offers a very tasty mix of red and black cherry fruit, along with muddled strawberry, light spice and tea shadings. A flash of tobacco marks the full-bodied finish. Solid Tavel."
