Tavel: Domaine Maby 'La Forcadière' 2019
Tavel: Domaine Maby 'La Forcadière' - a full-bodied rosé wine made in a traditional style. It's a great food wine, beloved by savvy sommeliers, and would go down a treat with a harissa roast chicken or a spicy vegetable tagine, and makes an ideal partner to Asian dishes.
The Domaine Maby flagship Tavel rosé 'La Forcadière', from France's only exclusively rosé appellation, is widely and rightly regarded as being one of the best on the market. It is made from a blend of 7 different grape varieties (Grenache Noir, Syrah, Cinsault, Grenache Blanc, Bourboulenc, Carignan & Clairette).
This Tavel wine has a lovely terracotta robe, ripe berry scents and a palate of red fruit with subtle spicy undertones and a delicate rasp of tannin.
