Tavel

The "First Rosé of France" and of the Cotes du Rhone, famous since the 10th century, Tavel wines were present on the Pope's table when the papacy was located in Avignon in the 14th century. This wine is produced with a number of wine varieties. Smooth, generous and fruity, with an amber-shaded color of incredible intensity, it shows hints of topaz-colored reflections on aging. Its connoisseurs appreciate it young and fresh, richly telling of all the scents and flavors of the southern French hills.
