Prieure de Montezargues 2016 Tavel Rose

A buddy of ours in the wine world who has a golden palate "found" a stash of rose in the warehouse that had been forgotten and emailed me immediately. They want to move it out and he said, "this wine is awesome. I am taking as much home as I can drink this summer - you should jump on it. For $6 it cannot be beat." ABOUT TAVEL ROSE AND WHAT TO EXPECT In Southern Rhone, at the edge of Provence, you'll find Tavel rose ONLY appellation. In Tavel, the finest vineyard sites, the oldest vines and with the utmost care is dedicated to crafting serious rose pink wine isn't an afterthought, it's the flagship product. Perhaps that's why Tavel rose was the favorite wine of King Louis XIV and many wine drinkers since. Tavel rose's are deep salmon to ruby-pink in color, fuller on the palate and complex. They stand out in a sea of pale, flavorless pink juice as a serious and versatile wine that pairs well with a wide range of cuisine_??especially grilled. If you are a rose drinker, you should have a few bottles from Tavel in your rotation and my pick would be 2016 Prieure de Montezargues.
