Superb harmony combining a cocktail of red and white fruit, and a hint of mineral and spices. Structure is long and very fresh, a great wine for pairing with food. Amazing complexity.
Provençal style bouillabaisse would pair perfectly with a rich and spicy Tavel like this one. The tomato, chilli and garlic in the dish help balance out the soft tannins that would normally be undesirable when eating fish.
Langoustines have a similar sweet taste to lobster and are classically served on a bbq with lots of garlic. Here a Chardonnay would go down well too but it is worth considering a dry Provençal rosé or a Bandol rosé, especially if you are sitting in the sunny garden. If the langoustines (or even the lobster) is served with an intense shellfish sauce like thermidor or bisque, do try this Tavel rosé with its delicious, rich and spicy aftertaste.
