2020 Peyrassol Cuvee des Commandeurs Cotes de Provence Rose

Pretty in Pink
March 25, 2021

 

Peyrassol

 

Ch√Ęteau Peyrassol is in the cooler highlands of northern Provence, where the wines are lighter and more elegant. Last year's Commanderie de Peyrassol was a favorite here for its pretty delicate fruit and finesse. The property’s first harvest was 850 years ago. For the last 20 years, it has been the property of the Ausutray family who has invested a lot in cellar and vineyard.

The vineyards are farmed organically, the fermentations are temperature-controlled and last a long time. This emphasizes the fruit in the wine. At the same time, it is a wine of finesse, lively and fresh, great for sipping by itself, or with lighter meals.

The 2020 edition has taken a slight name change, but has the same quality and style, with perhaps even a headier note of lush tropical flower.

 

2020 Peyrassol Cotes de Provence Cuvee des Commandeurs; Aroma: heady and sweet very dense precise rose-floral notes, clean & firm, heady tropical flowers; Mouth: juicy intense nice weight nicely forward, some Rolle gives it a crisp acid cut, rich and complete; Very Good Plus
