Renowned rosé producing appellation – unique microclimate
Regarded as the best rosé producing district of the Rhone Valley, Tavel wines are crafted using a careful blend of grape varieties that produce some France’s more full blooded rosés.
The Prieure de Montezargues sits sheltered from the Mistral winds at the foot of the Montagne Noir, allowing the grapes to ripen without the potential threat that strong regional winds can pose to vines in the area.
The 33 hectare vineyard is run by Guillaume Dugas, whose estate also includes a number of stunning, hundred-year-old strawberry trees, a flavour that is detectable throughout the cuveés in his range.
Louis XIV was among the first to sing the praises of Tavel’s delicious and memorable rosés. The rosé of Prieure de Montezargues has lovely aromas of ripe, red berries with notes of the ubiquitous spicy garrigue.
