We enjoyed the 2008 Chateau de Segries Tavel Rosé last night with some tacos and was a nice pairing, although this Rosé could go with just about everything.
Appellation: Tavel (only Rosé is produced here)
Grapes: 50% Grenache, 30% Cinsault, 15% Clairette, 5% Syrah
My Tasting Notes –
Color: deep pink
Nose: fresh herb garden, tangerine and strawberry
Taste: spicy strawberry, watermelon, slate, ginger and rhubarb
Mouthfeel: medium to full body, great roundness but crisp finish, a perfect combo
Finish: decent length with persistent fruit and minerality
A fabulous Rosé , and a great value. If you love dry Rosé and want to try a great example give this one a whirl!
