Commanderie de Peyrassol Cotes de Provence Rose 2013
"For us, this wine is the classic representation of the pink-tinted wines of this region and is the workhorse wine of the estate. It carries a pale rose color, a lovely fruit blossom nose and finishes crisply dry with a stony touch that gives it class and elegance. The grape blend is usually Cinsault, Grenache and Syrah in varying percentages. The average age of the vines is 25 years or more. The Rosés of Peyrassol are made from the direct press method. The grapes undergo cold maceration before being pressed. This gives them their beautiful watermelon pink color. The fermentation takes place under controlled temperatures and is exceptionally long, resulting in rosés that are both lively, fresh and full-bodied." -Importer
Very light clear salmon color. Fresh, clean, sweet fruity nose. Nice spice with a slight greenness. Well balanced with nice acid. Juicy ripe Asian pear, citrus, berries and cream.

Blend of Grenache, Cinsault and Syrah Mourvedre. A very pale and luminous pink with mauve reflections. Fresh and ropy taste. A mixture of crushed ripe fruits - peaches and strawberries. Refined, tender, subtle. Pure first taste with mineral and fruity notes. A floral scent of rose and carnation. Goes well with spicy food, veal and chicken, fishes boiled, grilled and barbecued.
