Bright, juicy, floral and drop-dead delicious. That's how we would describe the Chateau Peyrassol Cuvee des Commandeurs Cotes de Provence Rose. Chill it and enjoy a glass all by itself to get lost in all the layers. It's the perfect companion at the beach, pool, picnic or on the deck on a warm evening. We like it with bruschettas made with prosciutto, ricotta and a little arugula. Drizzle some aged balsamico over them and dig in. The saltiness of the ham is a home run next to all the fruit. A great choice for a summer lunch or light dinner is a BLT pasta salad, just make sure you've got enough of the Peyrassol to go around. And if you're looking to wow a crowd, make it a big pan of grilled seafood paella. Oh my and Cheers winelovers!
Winery: "Cuvée des Commandeurs bottles the essence of quality fruit, seeking to evoke pleasure and delight the senses. This accessible rosé was crafted to provide thirst-quenching freshness with vibrant fruitiness, without sacrificing elegance and complexity.
A soft color reminiscent of rose petals. A beautiful nose of English candy, strawberry and raspberry aromas followed by light redcurrant and citrus notes. The delicate and tender palate, marked by the complexity of red and exotic fruit flavors, fully releases all the grape varieties’ expression.
Enjoy the liveliness of this wine with a taste of salmon, scallops or sea bass sushi."
The 2020 vintage: “2021 was a challenge, however, Peyrassol was lucky to escape adversity. At the end of April, a historic frost from the northwest (-9°C ) hit the region. The vines, late for the season, had not yet budded so the loss was minimal. In mid-August, a violent fire started in the plains of Le Luc, sowing desolation in its path. The mistral was kind to Peyrassol and repelled the fire in the opposite direction. At the beginning of September, a hail storm destroyed the entire harvest of the village of Pignan, just a few miles from the estate. The hills on the Peyrassol property blocked the clouds. Finally, floods ravage all the surrounding municipalities ... but stopped at the gates of Flassans! In the end, the ultimate reward was an exceptional quality of musts and wines.”
