Reviews and Ratings

John Sallinen rated this wine as 92/100
Jennifer Havers - WSET Level 3 rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

There is no colour like a Tavel rose - simply stunning! And the wine is wonderful too. Aromas of strawberry, watermelon and cotton candy, with hints of roses and orange. Full bodied and rich, but still light enough to enjoy all summer. Fruit is ripe and juicy with just enough rich citrus to balance. Enjoy with grilled pork.
Craig Haynes - WSET3 FWS SWS IWS rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

Visually stunning, the 2021 Château d'Aquéria Rosé expresses big doses of fresh aromas - especially strawberry and raspberry - plus spice, cotton candy and bubble gum. The flavours taste mostly of strawberries and raspberries. Delicious.

Full bodied, this Côtes-du-Rhône cru feels lovely and refreshing. Crisp, super dry, velvety call my with ample acidity. Superb.

The blend bill is mainly Grenache, Clairette, and Syrah. Cinsault, Mourvèdre, Bourboulenc, and Picpoul are present, too. Enjoy.

I’ll serve this with shellfish and olives.

Reviewed June 2022
Château d'Aquéria 2021 Tavel is a dry, full-bodied, brilliant Tavel with red plum, cherry, fine herbs, pepper spice and soft orange citrus flavours concentrated on the palate. Chill and enjoy with end of summer days and lamb chops from the grill or hold on to it to enjoy with a baked maple-smoked ham for the holidays. - Community Wine Reviews
