Tavel is famous for its roses. This was one I had never seen before, so I was very excited when my sister-in-law dropped by with this pink beauty. The 2007 Domaine Maby "La Forcadière" (Tavel) had a nose of raspberries, lemons, and white flowers, with a delightful earthy green-ness. Refreshing, luscious, dry raspberries on the palate, but a touch hot as the alcohol level showed through. A very good example of a fine Tavel, and it warmed up to 'chambre' quite nicely.
