Region: Côtes de Provence, Provence, France

Varietal: 70% Syrah, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon

Tasting notes: It is the Syrah aromas that explode on the first nose: redcurrant, blueberry, and spices, conferring from the outset a beautiful personality to this wine. Then comes the freshness of the Cabernet Sauvignon which balances the whole. It is crunchy with bright acidity and mixed with notes of red fruits and licorice on the palate. Its elegant finish reveals the roundness of gourmet cherries. Its almost minty freshness makes this wine the perfect companion throughout the meal.

Producer: Commanderie de Peyrassol is located in the foothills of the Massif des Maures mountain range, 10 miles from the Mediterranean Sea, between Cannes and Marseille. Existing as a winery for almost 800 years, Commanderie de Peyrassol has thrived as a sanctuary for gathering travelers, all the while holding true to its values of hospitality and conviviality. The estate consists of 1,000 hectares with 95 hectares planted to vineyards cultivated on dry, rocky clay and limestone soils. With effort from the current owner, Philippe Austury, to revitalize estates’ centuries-old reputation, Peyrassol is now, more than ever, synonymous with great wines and celebrated generosity across the world.

Vineyard and Winemaking: Highly sustainable agriculture. Soil treatment is kept to a minimum and the vines are constantly monitored, on the basis that prevention is better than cure. Cereals are sown between the rows to enhance the vitality of the soil. The grapes are selected from plots of young vines, with yields of around 45 hectolitres per hectare. Separate manual harvesting for each variety in 30 kg baskets.
