The delicious rosés of Château de Trinquevedel are classic examples of the Southern Rhône's most prestigious rosé producing region. This fleshy rosé has notes of ripe red berries and fresh lavender-scented garrigue character. Malolactic fermentation is avoided to highlight freshness. 60% Grenache, 13% Clairette, 13% Syrah, 10% Cinsault, 3% Mourvèdre, 1% Bourboulenc

Louis XIV was among the first to sing the praises of Tavel’s delicious and memorable rosés, which only stands to reason given the appellation’s grand cru reputation today. Tavel is the only A.O.C. entirely made up of rosé, which prohibits any whites or reds from wearing the label of this Southern Rhône cru. No more than sixty percent of the final blend can be made up of the noble Grenache. In other appellations where rosé is made, it is often regarded as an afterthought— most of the grapes are frequently sourced from lesser parcels, as the lighter maceration of the grapes is seen as “wasting” precious juice.  In Tavel, even the best parcels may contribute to the blend, yet another aspect that makes this cru so special.
