Our comment

“The premier rosé of France, very full, from a great vintage, redolent of violets and tobacco plants in early evening. A great mouthful of fruits and summer flowers. Perfect with fish, chicken, grilled shops or paella.” - by K. STEVENS M.W.

Vintages 2017


Score : 16.5/20

Un vrai tavel à l’ancienne, avec de la couleur et du goût, c’est un faux rouge en bouche avec sa densité et sa persistance, et son équilibre frais sur un fruité grenadine. 



Score : 90

In contrast, the 2017 Tavel is classic Tavel with its more medium ruby color, ripe notes of raspberries, cherries and spice, medium body, and a layered, richer texture. It still stays fresh and vibrant on the palate.



Score : 91

Guigal's 2017 Tavel is a full-bodied, expansive rosé loaded with ripe berry flavors. Plump, round and creamy in texture, it finishes long, with hints of dried spices and pressed flowers. Like most Tavels, it will easily last through the second year after the vintage.
