"Tavel is an appellation in the Rhone Valley of southern France that was famous for its rosé wine long before rosé became a fad in this country. And despite the trendy preference for paler pinks, Tavel maintains its tradition of deeply colored rosé with enough heft to accompany heartier foods. This wine is not for casual sipping along the Cote d’Azur, or even on your patio. Have this with a seafood stew, grilled fish or barbecued pork. ABV: 14.5 percent. - Dave McIntyre"

"The 2019 Tavel from Château de Ségriès is terrific, offering classic Tavel richness and depth as well as lots of kirsch and wild strawberry fruits, a touch of wildflowers, medium-bodied richness, good acidity, and a great finish. It’s another dry rosé from 2019 that has loads to love. As with the majority of Tavel, it’s geared for the dinner table and will keep for 6-12 months, if not a touch longer."
"This is a deeply concentrated rosé, both in color and palate, suggesting sun-kissed watermelon, raspberry and red-cherry flavors. It's full bodied and intensely fruity but refreshingly dry and mineral on the palate too. It's a bold wine framed by fine, firm tannins and a long finish to enjoy now through 2023. - Anna Lee C.

"The 2017 Tavel from this terrific estate is a winner. Made from 50% Grenache, 30% Cinsault, and 10% each of Clairette and Syrah, it has classic cherry and strawberry fruits as well as subtle floral notes, and it’s medium-bodied, rich, and textured on the palate, with nicely integrated acidity. As with all classic Tavel, it’s geared for the dinner table and will keep for a year or two."
"This Rosé displays aromas of red cherry with a purity that runs through the wine. Soft and full with moderate acidity, it has generous fruit and a touch of earthiness. There's a perfumed character to the palate also. Very Tavel like in character. A blend of 50% Grenache, 30% Cinsault, 10% Clairette, 10% Syrah done saignée style from 60 year old vines. 14.5% alc."
