A blend of 60% Grenache, 20% Syrah, 10% Cinsault and 10% Clairette, the knockout 2012 Tavel Rose La Dame Rousse has lively watermelon, cherry and mineral aromas that all come soaring from the glass. Beautifully pure and delineated on the palate, with juicy acidity and a seamless texture, this seriously classy rose has both richness and freshness. While it will drink nicely for 2-3 years, bottles won’t last that long in my house. Drink now-2013. 92/100
