The 2011 La Dame Rousse Tavel Rose which is 60% Grenache 20% Syrah and the rest equal parts Cinsault and the white grape Clairette. Full-bodied and substantial on the palate with stunning notes of strawberry and kirsch intermixed with licorice lavender and spring flowers this is about as good a rose as one can find in the marketplace but it is not for those looking for a somewhat innocuous lighter-styled rose. This wine delivers in an authoritative surprisingly intense style. Drink it over the next 1-3 years. Perhaps the best rose made in the world today is Mordoree's Tavel Rose La Reine des Bois ($34.00; 94 points for the 2011). As I have said in the past the vintages I have tasted to date are as profound as a rose can be. It is more similar to a light red wine than any rose I have tasted...

A classy elegant rosé that's a blend of 60% Grenache 20% Syrah 10% Cinsault and 10% Clairette the 2011 Domaine de la Mordorée Tavel Rosé La Dame Rousse highlights the best of Tavel and shows a deep pink color to go with loads of mineral-laced aromas of raspberry cherry pit and sappy garrigue that come soaring from the glass. Medium-bodied on the palate with a rich perfectly balanced mouth feel integrated acidity and fantastic length this top-notch wine is almost too much for mid-week quaffing and deserves to be paired with a meal. While it will certainly drink nicely for 2-3 years I think it will show at its finest over the coming summer months.

The reticent nose yields light raspberry and watermelon notes. In contrast the palate showcases loads of dried currant raspberry and goji berry flavors along with plenty of fresh cracked pepper giving spice to the finish. Bone dry and delicious this is a real pleasure. Should pair nicely with just about any dish.
