Overview of the Wine
With almost 800 years of existence, the Commanderie de Peyrassol is considered a landmark in the history of Provence. More than a winery, the Commanderie has thrived for centuries as a sanctuary for gathering travelers, all the while, holding true to its precious values of hospitality and conviviality.

Located in the foothills of the Massif des Maures, 10 miles from the Mediterranean Sea between Cannes and Marseille, the estate consists of 1,000 hectares, with 95 hectares planted to vineyards cultivated on dry, rocky clay and limestone soils. When Francoise Rigord and her husband managed the estate, Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon were planted in addition to the Grenache and Cinsault already growing at the estate. The main white varietals are Rolle and Ugni Blanc, supplemented by Semillon and Clairette. Since Philippe Austruy took ownership of the estate in 2001, Peyrassol has consciously maintained organic practices in full respect of the surrounding environment, aiming for certification in the coming years. No synthetic fertilizers, pesticides or fungicides are used in the vineyards. The age of the vines, the rocky terrain, and the hot, dry climate all do their part to severely restrict yields. Consequently, harvests typically average between 25 and 40 hectoliters per hectare depending on the vineyard and grape variety.

Inspired by the values at the origin of the estate: a sense of place, of great energy and centuries old commitment to hospitality, Peyrassol is now, more than ever, synonymous with great wines and celebrated generosity across the world.

Winemakers' Tasting Notes
A soft color reminiscent of rose petals. A beautiful nose of English candy, strawberry and raspberry aromas followed by light redcurrant and citrus notes. The delicate and tender palate, marked by the complexity of red and exotic fruit flavors, fully releases all the grape varieties' expression.

92 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
One of Provence's top winery destinations has produced a formidable 2021 Cotes de Provence Rose Chateau Peyrassol. Crushed stone, alpine strawberries and white peaches add up to a delicate set of flavors, but one that is reasonably intense at the same time. It's medium-bodied, silky, stony, refreshing and long. Tasted twice (once blind), with consistent notes.  92 points Robert Parker today.
