Vignerons de Tavel et Lirac

Tavel’s cooperative single-handedly defines the appellation – its members produce about half of all the wine made here, especially after a recent merger with the cooperative in Lirac.

Similarly to Bandol’s Moulin de la Roque, they produce a range of single-terroir Tavels, with the three cuvées (Les Lauzeraies, Trésors des Sables, and the Cuvée Royale) from the limestone, sand and galets terroirs respectively. They are all modern, paler and lightweight interpretations of Tavel. All three ably demonstrate the three soils’ typicity, and combined are an excellent educational tool for understanding Tavel.
