Winemaker’s notes:
Chateau de Manissy 2020 Tavel Cuvee des Lys Rosé has powerful, mineral-accented aromas of ripe red berries and citrus fruits, joined by a suave, floral top note that builds in the glass. Sappy and concentrated on the palate, offering fresh raspberry, bitter cherry, and blood orange flavors and a hint of honeysuckle. Finishes long, chewy, and precise, delivering strong mineral cut and lingering florality.

Organic! Pairs well with salads, grilled tuna, Salade Nicoise, pork, chicken, bouillabaisse and mild cheeses.

Critical Acclaim:
“A touch of burnt caramel lends spice to notes of red plums and cherry blossoms in this invigorating dry rosé sourced from organically farmed Grenache (60%), Syrah (20%) and Clairette (20%). It’s luscious on the palate but thirst-quenching and spry, with a long, invigoratingly mineral finish. Delightful young, the wine should hold through 2022” 90 pts – Wine Enthusiast

“A blend of Grenache, Syrah and Clairette, the 2020 Tavel Cuvee des Lys is a medium translucent ruby in the glass. Plump and rounded in the mouth, it’s a ripe, medium-bodied effort loaded with red berries and flanked by hints of crushed stone and citrus. Offering delicious and uncomplicated drinking.” 89 pts – Wine Advocate
