Domaine Maby - Tavel , Southern Rhone . France
Domaine Maby is found in the heart of the village of Tavel in the southern Rhône. There are some 60 hectares covering Tavel, Lirac and Côtes-du Rhône, with excellent wines produced in all three colours. The Tavel and Lirac vineyards have the same round pebbles (galets roulés) as are found in Châteauneuf-du-Pape. These are precious as they conserve heat accumulated during the day and then restore it slowly to the soil during the night which helps the grapes attain even better ripeness.
Richard Maby, took over responsibility from his father in 2005, respecting tradition but embracing new techniques.The individuality of the famous Tavel rosés lies in their great structure and fruitiness, aptly displayed here at Maby. Richard goes so far as to claim that anyone tasting his rosés blindfolded would be hard pressed to know whether the wine was pink or red.
Domaine Maby reds are meaty and packed with flavour. Lirac is especially generous in style and capable of ageing The estate’s white Lirac, a blend which includes the picpoul grape ,is dry and herby and true to the tradition style of the appellation.
