Chateau d'Aqueria Tavel Rosé 2016
|Region||France, Rhone, Tavel|
Wine EnthusiastFavorable exchange rates have lowered the price of this gem to nearly everyday status, making it a terrific value. Ripe melon and red berry flavors are supported by a firm bed of crushed stone, then garnished by subtle spice notes. Typical of Tavel, it's on the full-bodied side for a rosÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂ©, but doesn't seem heavy at all. Drink now-2018.
Wine AdvocateTypical of the best of the appellation, Chateau d'Aqueria's 2016 Tavel is medium to full-bodied but doesn't seem at all heavy. This offers cherries and spice, so nice, along with dusty earth notes, a rich, silky texture and a long, layered finish.
Wine SpectatorThis sports a plump core of strawberry and red currant notes, flanked with high-pitched rose water and floral accents. A pretty wet stone accent adds refreshing cut on the finish. Drink now. 20,000 cases made.
