L’Anglore Tavel is a natural, biodynamic and ecological barrel-aged rosé wine made by L’Anglore in Rhone (France) with red varieties including Garnacha Tinta, Cinsault, Cariñena and Clairette.
A beekeeper and winemaker in the town of Tavel, Erir Pfifferling is known for his completely natural wines made without the use of chemicals either in the vineyard or in the winery. His “dark rosés” made with noble varieties are especially famous. With 7 hectares of vineyards he produces light, smooth and very modern wines.
The grapes used to make L’Anglore Tavel come from a small vineyard located in the town of Tavel. These are 60-year-old strains planted in clay and limestone soils with sand and gravels. The team work according to the principles of organic farming with low yields and the harvest is carried out manually when the grapes are ripe, but relatively early.
In the winery, the L’Anglore Tavel grapes are vinified by carbonic maceration in old oak barrels or neutral French concrete tanks. Fermentation takes place with native yeasts and without controlling the temperature. No adjustments are made, and the wine is not filtered or clarified. At most, little or no sulphur dioxide is added when it is bottled.
L’Anglore Tavel is a barrel-aged rosé that is very complex but very easy to drink.
