About Romain Le Bars Tavel Rosé
Romain Le Bars Tavel Rosé is an organic blend of Grenache and Syrah from a tiny 1.5-hectare plot. Hand-harvested, spontaneous fermentation, carbonic maceration, no added sulfur, unfined/unfiltered. Matured in barriques. 2018 was the first vintage for this young winemaker, who spent 7 years working for legendary Tavel producer Domaine L’Anglore. Dry and medium-bodied with red berry compote, purple flowers, and a stony minerality. Elegant and ethereal – chillable red or is it a rose – you decide.
About Romain Le Bars
Romain Le Bars is part of a band of young vignerons (Valentin Valles, Sébastien Chatillon, Gregory Guillaume, and Charles Soulier) who are putting the deep southern Rhône/Gard on the natural wine map in a significant way. Romain works a minuscule 1.50-hectare vineyard and had his first harvest in 2018. Before bottling his first vintage, he spent 7 years working for Tavel legend Eric Pfifferling (Domain L’Anglore) and that influence is evident in the glass! The wines are mostly blends of Grenache and Syrah, vinified in used wood barrels, that are either carbonically macerated or direct press. These are light, zero-zero wines made in the same spirit as his former employer. In other words, light in color and powerful in expression! Romain is certainly a name to pay attention to as these tiny production wines have garnered an immediate following!
