2020 Château de Peyrassol Rosé Le Clos Peyrassol (750ml)15 0 0 0
Standing above the village of Flassans-sur-Isole, in the heart of the hills of the Var, the Commanderie de Peyrassol was founded in the 13th century by the Knights Templar. This great expanse of fertile soil was a popular staging post and a place of rest for large numbers of pilgrims setting off for the Holy Land. As one of the jewels of Provence, the domaine has always maintained its agricultural and winegrowing traditions.
The Le Clos Peyrassol is the most prestigious cuvée of the domain. The wine’s first production was 2009 and since then has only been produced in the most ideal of vintages.
"Limpid silver-pink. A complex, assertively perfumed bouquet evokes fresh, mineral-accented red berries, citrus fruits, pungent flowers and succulent herbs. Dry and sharply focused on the palate, offering concentrated strawberry, pomegranate, blood orange and honeysuckle flavors and a hint of tarragon. Shows superb clarity and mineral-drive on the incisive finish, which hangs on with outstanding tenacity and repeating florality. Raised in clay amphoras and only 12.5% alcohol." 94 points - Josh Raynolds (Vinous. Tasting, May 2021)
