The Cave des vignerons de Tavel is in the purest Provençal style. It was built in 1937 when Tavel wines were labelled AOC. It is to date the only winery to be opened by a President of the Republic – Albert Lebrun in 1938. The Cave de Tavel produces half of the Tavel AOC wines, as well as Lirac, Côtes-du-Rhône Villages and Côtes-du-Rhône and stretches over 680 Ha..There are 140 producers, all involved in the day-to-day life of the winery and have their say in the winery decisions.
A blend of 60% Grenache, 20% Syrah & 10% each Carignan & Mourvedre, grown in the clay & limestone soils in Tavel & the surrounding areas. Opens with vibrant & perfumed notes of smoky cherry, raspberry, ground pepper & violet. The palate is purely fruited with fresh red & black fruits backed by savory hints of iron, laurel, thyme, rosemary & mint. Medium-to-full in body, this Cotes du Rhone is beautifully texutred with plenty of juicy fruit & peppery nuances through the long & fleshy finish.
