Winemaker's Notes:

In the glass, Prieure de Montezargues Tavel Rose is a pretty pale pink with violet glints. The nose is intense with notes of grapefruit, pear and red fruits: cherry and raspberry. A crisp mouth; round, full bodied, a nice balance and a velvety feel. The finish is long with hints of peach and red fruit.

Blend: 55% Grenaches (red and white), 30%, Cinsault, 13% Clairette, 2% Others (Syrah, Mourvedre, Carignan, Bourboulenc)

About Prieure de Montezargues:

Near Tavel, concealed by a forest of Holm oaks and Scots pine, and protected from the Mistral by the Montagne Noire ("Black Mountain"), Montezargues Priory quietly ripens its grapes on sandy slopes that run down to Pujaut Pond.

Eight varieties flourish in the Provencal sunshine: Grenache Noir and Grenache Blanc, Cinsault, Syrah, Mourvedre, Carignan, Clairette and Bourboulenc.
