Chateau d'Aqueria Tavel Rosé 2017
|Region||France, Rhone, Tavel|
Wine AdvocateConcentrated raspberry and strawberry notes mark the nose fo the 2017 Tavel. This medium to full-bodied effort is bursting with ripe fruit and boasts a rich, silky mouthfeel and a long, lingering finish. An elegant undercurrent of crushed stone provides balance and savoriness, making this a terrific, balanced Tavel to enjoy over the next year or so.
Wine EnthusiastJuicy, mouthwatering blackberry and cherry flavors abound in this exuberantly fruity yet elegant rosé. While plush and full on the palate, it's dry and briskly balanced, with a firm, mineral backbone. Fine, feathery tannins and a touch of sweet spice linger on the finish. Drink now-2020.
Wine SpectatorA bright, fresh style, with a burst of strawberry and cherry fruit backed by a light stony spine for balance and focus. Begs for poached salmon. Drink now. 16,000 cases made.
