The Land: Located in the heart of the southern Rhône Valley, the vineyards of Château de Trinquevedel are deeply embedded in the unique terroir of Tavel. This appellation, distinguished as one of the region’s two cru AOCs dedicated solely to rosé, mirrors the esteemed stony grounds of its celebrated neighbors like Châteauneuf-du-Pape. The terrain is characterized by well-draining sandy soils and the iconic galets roulés—large, rounded river stones that capture and radiate the warmth of the sun, enhancing the ripening process. This distinct composition contributes profoundly to the expressive character of the wines produced here, allowing them to mirror the intensely stony and herbal nature of the Rhône’s more famous reds.

The Wine: Chateau de Trinquevedel Tavel 2022 is a vibrant rosé in capturing the essence of its terroir. Crafted from a blend of traditional southern Rhône varietals—primarily Grenache, supported by Clairette, Syrah, and Cinsault—this rosé exudes a complexity and depth that is rare for its category. The wine presents a seductive, deep pink hue and unleashes aromas of red berries, ripe watermelon, and the aromatic wild herbs known as garrigue. On the palate, it offers a rich, stony spiciness balanced by a refreshing density, culminating in a finish that is both invigorating and robust. This rosé not only challenges but also delights the senses, proving its capability to stand alongside the robust reds of the region.

The People: Since its establishment in 1936, the Tavel appellation has been unwavering in its mission to showcase the extraordinary potential of rosé wines. Château de Trinquevedel, nestled within this prestigious zone, embraces this legacy with a commitment to excellence that is evident in every bottle. The winemakers here harness the unique properties of their terroir, crafting rosés that are structured yet graceful, capable of aging yet delightful when enjoyed young. Their approach is meticulous and passionate, ensuring that each vintage not only reflects the stony and herbaceous character of Tavel but also serves as a delicious companion to a diverse array of culinary delights—from seafood dishes like grilled cod with tapenade to more summery fares such as grilled shrimp and corn with avocado. This dedication to quality and expression makes Château de Trinquevedel a true ambassador of Tavel rosé, proving that the appellation’s wines are both distinctive and integral to the narrative of the Rhône Valley.
