    December 18, 2011 - Guests were pleasantly surprised by the difference that this bottle presented from other rose wines we've had. Fairly complex with a hint of sweetness that was not at all displeasing.

    August 16, 2010 - Light, a bit of acid, a bit of pepper and just what we expected! Yum

    May 22, 2010 - Red berries, fresh herbs and just the slightest touch of leather and liquorice on the nose.
    Dry and quite light with still a rather refreshing acidity kicking in. Notes of red berries, peach, herbs, liquorice and even some nuttiness.
    At first I thought this to be way past it's prime - but with an hour or so of breathing, this came alive as a gentle, balanced and vinous wine. I truly liked this a lot, but basing on my previous tastings of this label I think this usually needs a few years of age to became interesting. And the 14-% abv didn't bother me a bit.

    September 28, 2009 - There is a harshness to the flavour that I just can't get over. It seems so unnecessary. The colour and aroma are delightful, but the flavour is dominated by that harshness. For that reason, it is, to me, only average (77.5).

    (Chateau d'Aqueria Tavel Rosé) A vibrant, deep pink hue, and a nose of sweet red fruits, cherries with a leafy edge. A nicely structured grip on the palate, which possesses quite a firm acidity underneath the sweet-savoury fruit. A good, full-bodied, forceful style.
