Reviews and Ratings

Sandra Smith rated this wine as 100/100 with the following review:

Much better last year. Flat and overpowering this year
Gabriel Israel rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

an amazing pairing with John's unbelieveable fishsoup with fish sausage - pair made in heaven!
Tavel Rosé was the favoured wine of The Sun King, Louis XIV of France (1638-1715). Now you’ll look bright for serving it at your table. Remarkably robust. Made with mostly Grenache with Cinsaut in support. Aromas feature strawberry, Asian pear, candy apple, sour cherry and a hint of earth. Serious, dry rosé with fairly impressive oomph to the mid-palate and the tangy, flavourful finish. Source: Vintages Wine Panel

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a feisty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.
