Commanderie de Peyrassol Rosé Blend Côtes de Provence Rosé 2010
Excellent. Dry and fruity.
What would summer be without a cold, crisp rosé? It’s the long relaxing exhale in the midst of your day dream day lazing about in the sun. If you’re going for rosé on the 4th of July, why not get one from the birthplace of the varietal, France. The Knights of Templars started making wine at Commanderie of Peyrassol about 800 years ago. That’s plenty of time to refine a craft and turn out excellent wine. The 2010 vintage is fresh, fruity and ready for fun. This is one food friendly wine. Try it with fried chicken, grilled vegetables and even ribs. Look: A classic rosé, delicate rose pink, with good clarity. Smell: Commanderie de Peyrassol is delightful with a lilac, strawberry, lemon zest gentle nose. Taste: Fresh biscuit, strawberries, lemon good minerality, crisp with an easy finish.
