Made by Rhone experts Maison Brotte in the unique rosé appellation of Tavel in the Southern Rhone, this is a refined and elegant Grenache based blend, given 90 points by wine critic Robert Parker. You'll find aromatic notes of redcurrant and wild strawberry following through to a lovely rounded, fruity palate with juicy red fruit and a hint of citrus on the finish. An ideal pairing with crab or lobster, but anything fishy will go nicely.

Buy this if...you're a rosé fiend.

Grown-up French rosé filled with juicy wild strawberry fruit and a fresh citrusy twang. One for the serious rosé buff.

The Producer

Maison Brotte was established in 1931 by Charles Brotte, who pioneered the bottling of Rhone wines for the appellation and four generations later, the business is still going strong with his grandson Laurent. Owned by Maison Brotte, Domaine Barville is the family property of Laurent Brotte, with 16 hectares situated in the heart of the Chateaneuf-du-Pape appellation on some of the areas' most prized soils. Brotte also produce wines from other Rhone appellations, including Tavel in the south and Crozes Hermitage in the north, working with local growers and overseeing the winemaking process.

Tom Cannavan Reviews

Don't just take our word for it; here's what wine writer Tom Cannavan has to say:

"From the traditional rosé stronghold of Tavel, very close to Châteauneuf-du-Pape this is a deeply-coloured, quite serious pink made from Grenache and Syrah that’s so unlike the in-vogue pale Provençal style, yet is quite marvellous: crammed with cherry and ripe red berries, there’s a creaminess to the flavour and texture and the little nip of tannin and focused acidity give it structure and length too. Excellent with a herby Italian sausage casserole perhaps?"

The Region

The sun-drenched Southern Rhone valley is home to the famous red wine appellations of Chateauneuf-du-Pape (also made in to a rather delicious white), Gigondas and Vacqueyras, along with lesser-known but equally delicious cru of Tavel, producing very serious, full bodied rosé wines, and Lirac, a great value appellation with rich but generally slightly lighter styles than the other cru. Large swathes of the region also produce the generic Cotes du Rhone and the more specific Cotes du Rhone Villages wines - which tend to be more approachable, easy-drinking styles offering good value for money.

Crab Cakes

The delicate crab meat calls for a smooth, fruity, floral white or rosé which doesn't overpower the meat - try Tavel rosés as they have good weight of fruit.
