Tavel is a unique rosé produced by a type of vinification which makes it completely different from any other rosé and is more like that of a red wine with long maceration of 48 to 72 hours. After pressing, fermentation takes 10 to 15 days at low temperature (55 to 60°F). It is a blend of drip juices which give it the requisite aromas, fruit, freshness and acidity, and pressing juices which preserve its richness, structure and strength. This clever blend has given rise to a wine to a stylish wine known as Top Rosé of France.
This Tavel is even more "different" as it is made with Organic Grapes./nAgeing in stainless steel vats before bottling.
Eye : bright rosé wine
Nose : Woody fruit, cherry.
Mouth : Ample, powerfull and round in the mouth with fruity notes and a spicy finish.
It will be perfect during the meal, with a duck brochette with orange, spicy or asian meals.
It also goes very well with cheeses.
