Dark pink-red color. Aromas of bay, thyme, cherry, and peach. Palate has watermelon, thyme, bay, and some heat on a medium finish. Consistent with past bottles and holding in there, despite the extra time in the bottle.
Pale salmon color. Aromas of thyme, strawberry, watermelon, cranberry, and cherry. Palate follows with sweet melon and tart cranberry notes carrying into a spicy finish. Lip-smacking and dangerous (too easy to drink too much). Drink.
Great Tavel rose but not the best vintage. Balanced, relatively dense and a concentrated wine. Red fruits, strawberries with a lot of kirsch. A point of minerality adding complexity. Less minerality than the big brother (le reine des bois) makes easy to enjoy. One of my favourite rose.
Clear, pale salmon, presence of legs. Clean, medium intensity developing nose, strawberries, cherries, hints of flowers and citrus. Dry, medium+ acidity, low tannins, medium+ alcohol, medium- body, medium intensity flavours, strawberries, cherries and blue flowers. Medium+ finish. Acceptable quality. Drink now, not suitable for further ageing.
