    Winemaker Notes

    Limpid deep color with brilliant reflections. The bouquet is floral and fruity aromas, which translate on the palate. It’s rich in mouth and offers a long fruity finish.

    Perfect with white meats and vegetables au gratin.

    Blend: 70% Grenache, 30% Cinsault

    Since the 16th century Pélaquié family cultivates vines on the place of the current operation. In 1908 wines of Laudun were shipped to Djibouti. The archives keep memories of distant expeditions.

    Luc Pélaquié gave new impetus to the company but has not forgotten the legacy. He took over the estate of his grandfather Joseph in 1976. The small family property has become a modern winery through numerous investments in winemaking vat for instance; always looking for quality and the expression of our best terroirs.

    In 2008, the company broke away from the wine cooperative of Saint Victor and became independent. Today we are able to manage the whole cycle from the vine farming to the production, from bottling to sales.

    From father to son the Pélaquié's have transmitted the preparation secrets. Each generation has lovingly protected this cultural legacy, enriched it with his own discoveries to create beautiful line of wines, well known for white, fresh and elegant.

    Pélaquié wines are now renowned and appreciated all over the world.

    The only all-rosé appellation in the Rhone, a Tavel comes in many hues from light salmon to bright pink and is said to be the only rosé that can actually age—and improve. The rosé wines of Tavel have a great historic reputation, having been favored by King Louis XIV in the 18th century, as well as famous authors, Balzac and Mistral.

    Tavel are always dry but the high percentage of the fruity Grenache (30-60% of the blend by law) and even Cinsault, give charming aromas and flavors that make them feel "almost sweet." A great Tavel rosé will have a bouquet suggestive of rose petals, apricot, strawberry and red currant. The palate may be fleshy, round and layered but is always fresh and balanced.

    Whether it’s playful and fun or savory and serious, most rosé today is not your grandmother’s White Zinfandel, though that category remains strong. Pink wine has recently become quite trendy, and this time around it’s commonly quite dry. It is produced throughout the world from a vast array of grape varieties, but the most successful sources are California, southern France (particularly Provence), and parts of Spain and Italy.

    Since the pigment in red wines comes from keeping fermenting juice in contact with the grape skins for an extended period, it follows that a pink wine can be made using just a brief period of skin contact—usually just a couple of days. The resulting color will depend on the grape variety and the winemaking style, ranging from pale salmon to deep magenta. These wines are typically fresh and fruity, fermented at cool temperatures in stainless steel to preserve the primary aromas and flavors. Most rosé, with a few notable exceptions, should be drunk rather young, within a few years of the vintage.
