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 nice crisp mouth; round and full bodied, with a nice balance and a velvety feel. The finish is long with hints of peach and red fruit.

Really nice Tavel--classic style, dry with slightly smokey elements.
