Such beauty and pedigree rarely come along in the same bottle, much less for this price. Founded in the 13th Century as a way station for pilgrims heading to the Holy Land, Peyrassol is truly blessed. First, with its location, 1000 feet above the Massif de Maures in the heart of Provence; secondly with its clay and limestone soils, known to produce Grand Crus in their AOC category; third for the fact that since 2001 the vineyards have been under the clearly focused control of the same Cacaret/Austrys family.
Peyrassol was a favorite wine to pair with Ryan’s summer menus last year, and we are pleased to offer it because it represents the essence of what we love about Provencal Rosés. It has gorgeous pale rose color with a delicate fruit blossom nose that opens to an elegant, but lively minerality.
Night harvest, direct press and cold maceration, aged in SS after fermentation. Wonderful history, great drinking Rosé, and the sculpture gardens aren’t bad either.
