  • Introduction

    • The most prestigious cuvée of the domain, Le Clos Peyrassol Rosé was recommended by Wine Advocate in 2020, tying for 1st place as the best Côte de Provence rosé. The wine’s first production was 2009 and since then has only been produced in the most ideal of vintages.

  • Vineyard Profile

    • Soil: Clay and limestone dating from the Triassic, with a high proportion of pebbles, surrounded by dry stone walls. Currently under organic conversion.
  • Vinification

    • Hand-harvested at night to retain freshness and prevent any early maceration of the berries. The fruit is destemmed and pressed gently to separate the free run juice. It is vinified in stainless steel tank after a 24-hour cold settling to remove the majority of lees. Malolactic fermentation is avoided.

    • Aging: Aged for 6 months in grit stoneware jars which maintains the great freshness of the fruit while gaining complexity from the micro-oxygenation of the jars.
  • Technical Information

    • Varietal Composition: Cinsault, Grenache, Tibouren
  • Tasting Notes

    • Reflections of pale pink and scents of crushed stone, red berries, nectarine and lime. Gourmet, refined and ample, this emblematic cuvée cultivates elegance.

    • Serving Suggestions: Enjoy with delicate white fish, or tantalizing crispy squid ceviche
