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.

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

A fuller style which although has a softer nose, is beautiful clean and lingering. A meal Rose
Andrew Bernardo rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

This is dynamic pink stuff featuring aromas and flavours of strawberry cream, watermelon, orange blossom and acacia flowers. 91 Points.
Andrea Shapiro rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

A pretty, deep translucent fuchsia coloured rose from Chateau d’Aqueria in the Tavel region of southern France. Made from a diverse blend of Grenache, Clairette, Cinsault, Mourvedre, Syrah, Bourboulenc and Picpoul. Wonderfully floral and fragrant with an aromatic bouquet featuring cherry, cantaloupe, red delicious apples, strawberry candies, white roses, and light delicate pink ginger. Flavours show farm fresh raspberries, melon, clementines, soft stony minerals and sour cherry taffy. All intricately layered flavours end with a dry, velvety finish. Fun and flavourful. Good for salmon mousse or on its own as is. Goes with anything! - 91 points. Tasted again July 2019
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.
