Our Tavel is bursting with finesse and elegance. This wines outstanding structure attains nearly perfect balance with the complexity of the aromas of red fruit (cherry, strawberry) and spice. A dazzling rosé for serving with meals, delivering freshness, a lingering finish and stunning aromatic persistency. Truly a great vintage that will go down in history!
The tension in this wine benefits greatly from its time on wood, giving rise to notes of coffee, cocoa, liquorice and subtle violet, with very balanced organoleptic properties. Tannins are present and very mellow. A great vintage to allow to age a few years.
2016: An exceptional vintage. On the nose, our 2016 Lirac White is redolent with the floral notes our grapes express. Enormous aromatic complexity on the palate, with a fresh attack followed by generous pear, honeysuckle, anise, lifted by the roundness our Grenache contributes. Superb persistent finish on a mineral note, the signature of our terroir.
Château dAqueria was built in the 1800s by Count Louis Joseph dAqueria. Now its a family wine estate, for 3 generation, purchased in 1919 by jean Olivier, the estate is now run by his grandsons, Vincent & Bruno de Bez.
