Château de Trinquevedel 2018 Tavel Rosé, Tavel, Rhône Valley, France [375ml Half Bottle]

 Guillaume Demoulin is the fourth generation of his family to farm  the beautiful vineyards of Château de Trinquevedel. His  great-grandfather, Eugène, bought the eighteenth-century château in  1936—an opportune decision that coincided with the establishment of  Tavel’s A.O.C that same year. 

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.
