Chateau Peyrassol Cotes de Provence Rose "Commanderie" 2019
It’s ROSE SEASON and what better way to celebrate that than to drink from its capital?! The Peyrassol estate dates back to the time of the Crusades and the Knights Templar. This cuvee is what we consider the hallmark of the Rosenthal Rose selection due to it’s classic style and year to year continuity and 2019 was no different. Comprising 30% each Grenache, Cinsault, and Syrah, with small amounts of Tibouren and Mourvèdre completing the blend, the beloved “Commanderie” offers the tension, salinity, and crystalline fruit that characterize this wine every year. This breezy, delicious cuvée blends 70% estate-grown fruit with 30% purchased from several growers in nearby Flassans-sur-Isole with whom Peyrassol has multi-year contracts; Peyrassol’s team oversees the harvest and vinification of these sources.
