Château de Trinquevedel Tavel Rosé
Tavel AOC, Rhône Valley, France

Trinquevedel is a famous estate in the infamous rosé appellation of Tavel, beloved by King Louis XIV. Tavel lies next to the famous Châteauneuf-du-Pape, which speaks to its obvious quality. This gorgeous rosé is pretty full bodied for a pink wine, with a nose full of red berries, cassis, and cherry pit. It is fresh, yet quite rich, offering spicy raspberry and dark berry flavors. It’s delicious with salmon, asparagus, or skirt steak on the barbeque.
