    July 24, 2014 - Not my favorite. Scents of rose petals. Flavor was lacking.

    July 12, 2014 - Decent rose, a bit thin, with nose of fresh strawberry. Taste of strawberry with some berry too. Good on a hot summer afternoon in Phoenix.

    July 11, 2014 - Very nice on a hot day, with its reddish colour and inviting aromas with echoes of strawberries, but somehow does not leave quit the same impression as the Tempier Bandol rosé.

    June 24, 2014 - A bit to thin for my palate, might be the year, as most Tavels are more pronounced.

    April 29, 2014 - Vintage after vintage this Tavel is always a solid choice. A rose' that strives to be a red. Strawberry/salmon hued with nice legs. Raspberries and roses in the whiff, which carry through onto the palate. Great structure and texture. Refreshing yet offering sufficient depth to pair well with meals. One of those rare offerings that provides pleasure as both a patio sipper and meal accompaniment. At $13, one to buy by the case for summer.
