Chateau D’Aqueria Tavel Rosé 2019

Wine Wednesdays should be a transformative. If you’ve never had Chateau D’Aqueria’s Tavel Rose, you’re in for an experience. Trust me when I say this wine transforms in your mouth when you add food. The first time I had it, my dad broke me off a piece of focaccia and the combination changed my life. If pairing something so simple as bread with this wine is ethereal, the pairing possibilities with this wine are endless.

ORIGIN

Tavel, France

Grapes

45 % Grenache Noir & blanc, 21% Clairette, 15% Cinsault, 8% Mourvèdre, 6% Syrah, 5% Bourboulenc

Tasting Notes

Its deep aromatic complexity and its very special balance are the hallmarks of a great wine. Slightly lighter in hue than previous years, its robe is a dazzling ruby color. The attack on notes of spice opens onto a cocktail of red fruit and white fruit. Gorgeous generous mouth where the wide diversity of aromas of fruits combines with a structure that defines the balance of this wine.
