The winemaking tradition in Tavel dates back to Roman times, and the region’s terroir, featuring a combination of limestone soils, Mediterranean climate, and Mistral winds, contributes to the exceptional character of their rosé wines. Tavels rosés often exhibit a perfect balance between bright fruitiness and an intense character of minerality, making them an alternative choice for those who appreciate the elegance of red wines but desire the flavor of rosé.

Like other sub-regions in the Southern Rhone, traditional Tavel rosés are predominantly crafted from Grenache, Cinsault, Syrah, and Mourvèdre. This combination allows the wines to achieve high alcohol levels of 14–15%, along with lively acidity, high intensity, and a powerful backbone. Furthermore, these grape varieties contribute to a great balance between intensity and acidity, offering vibrant red fruit flavors and floral aromas.

To discover these hidden gems that are readily available, VinoVoss is delighted to present the perfect rosé for red wine lovers.
