Winemaker Notes

This rosé wine is bright with a fuchsia pink color. A rich fruity nose showing nice little red berries notes (raspberry and strawberry) . Fresh and balanced on the palate, rounded, then offering a deep finish with grapefruit notes. A Tavel rosé that is extremely pleasant, refreshing, and can be enjoyed on every occasion.

Critical Acclaim

WS 90
Wine Spectator
Stylish, with a mix of peach, mango, cherry and blood orange fruit enlivened by a mineral streak, revealing a flash of tobacco in the background. Shows good range and length.
WE 90
Wine Enthusiast
Juicy and plush but pertly balanced, this full-bodied rosé offers sun-kissed strawberry and sour-cherry flavors offset by crisp acidity and an elegant herbal finish. Delightful as an aperitif or with food, it's a well-balanced, nuanced wine to enjoy now—2020.

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.

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. 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 depends on grape variety and winemaking style, ranging from pale salmon to deep magenta.
