Natalie's Review

Famille Perrin Tavel 2019, Rhône A.C., France: This Tavel is produced from the well-known family-owned winery, Family Perrin. Rich and bone-dry with bright acidity, it is a 50% Cinsault, 25% Grenache and 25% Mourvèdre rosé wine blend. Look for fresh raspberry, strawberry, dried herb and spicy flavours on the palate. Pair with grilled salmon steaks. MINE: From a well-known producer famous for their Tavel wines. Pretty salmon colour in the glass, the rosé is bone dry, fragrant with pink florals, spice and fresh herb aromas on the nose. Bright and zesty with cherry, raspberry, pink grapefruit zest and light savoury herb flavours on the palate. Vibrant on the finish and easy to enjoy. Pair with smoked fish, but would equally go well with grilled pork chops. OTHER: Jennifer Havers - WSET Level 3 rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review: Rosé in the fall is a great idea!! This is a blend of Cinsault, Grenache and Mouvèdre, with aromas of ripe strawberry, watermelon candy and some herbaceous hints. Bright acidity on the palate with fresh, ripe fruit and berry notes and a zippy citrus finish. Enjoy with salmon, turkey, or roast pork tenderloin. OTHER: Tavel produces some of the driest, richest rosés in the world. Ideal summer sippers (they are from the sunny South of France, after all), they're also very food-friendly, with the structure and depth for seafood salads, chicken or grilled ribs (Vintages Panel, updated).

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.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
