Domaine Pelaquie Tavel Rosé


Domaine Pélaquié is a family-run estate with a long history; the estate has been passed down father to son for generations, cultivating the same land all the way back to the 16th century! The current son in charge, Luc Pélaquié, he practices sustainable viticulture, certified by HVE, on his 100 hectares of vines located in the Côtes-du-Rhône, Laudun, Tavel, and Lirac.

The wines from this side of the river typically have higher acidity, with soils made lighter by sand mixed with clay and limestone. This contributes a floral elegance to the wines that is quite unusual in the region. A blend of Grenache, Syrah, and Mourvedre from the Coteaux de Lauzes made in the saignée method. Hand-harvested and destemmed, then macerated for a few hours before being pressed. Smooth, generous and fruity, with an amber-shaded color of incredible intensity.The 2022 Rose is spicy with a floral blend of dried strawberries and dusty rose offset by a spritz of lime. It's soft and enveloping on the palate, with a pretty inner sweetness up front and ripe orchard fruits that cascade throughout.
