Decanter:

This winery has had its roots in Provence since 1256, and only one word can describe this rosé – elegant. Delicate redcurrants come through on the nose and that follows through to the palate. You can really feel the sea with its salty minerality, and there’s a bit of tannic grip as well.

Product Description:

"Pale onion skin, firm, crisp and balanced, with floral and mineral flavors that linger." -3 Stars, Best Value / #1 French Rose, Eric Asimov NY Times 'Wines of the Times' 7/18/2013

"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
