Natalie's Score: 92/100

Château D'aquéria's Tavel is floral, strawberries and roses on the nose and palate that ends in a light, but lingering fresh green herb finish. Lovely texture and mid-palate weight on this wine. The wine blend for this Rhone rosé is Grenache, Clairette, Cinsault, Mourvèdre, Syrah, Bourboulenc and Picpoul grapes. One of the best French roses to hit the liquor store every year, consistently great. Gorgeous and richly complex with fleshy ripe field strawberries. Full-bodied for rose yet perfectly balanced. Pair with planked salmon. So lovely.

Tavel food pairings: lox and capers, grilled salmon steak, shellfish, fresh fruit, veggies, pasta primavera.

Stephen Andrews reviewed this wine as follows:

Tasted Sept 3, 2018 Colour Deep Pink. Legs medium plus to thick. Aromas and flavours of, orange peel, tangerine, marmalade, hibiscus. Taste dry plus, medium plus, lots of citrus peel fruit, mouthwatering, well integrated alcohol gives the wine a richness and full bodied experience. Finish long with complex citrus and herbal floral character. For me this is the premier rose wine. I like this stuff so I am a little prejudice in my review. I like to have one or two bottles every summer. Paired with cedar planked salmon it is just wonderful in my opinion. Highly recommended try.
France Tavel A.P. Château D'aquéria 2017 is a full-bodied Tavel rosé from the Rhône wine region.
