Dry medium-bodied rosé | Out on a terrace with smoked meats
Guillaume Demoulin is the fourth generation to run the family vineyard in Tavel, the only Appellation d'Origine Contrôlée (AOC) that is entirely made up of rosé. The 2015 vintage always transports us back to a sunny meadow with bright red flowers, with an expressive nose of fresh, floral raspberries.
This rosé is for surf-and-turfs: lightly smoked meats and simple fish seasoned with just salt and pepper, as there’s a good amount of acid to bring out the natural flavours of the dishes.
