The Commanderie de Peyrassol is emblematic of the rich viticultural history of Provence, having produced wine in the region for almost 800 years. Today, Peyrassol makes a range of high quality wines that build upon the long history of the winery and the iconic terroir of the region with contemporary winery facilities.
The estate sits in the foothills of the massif des Maures, 10 miles from the Mediterranean Sea between Cannes and Marseille and has 95 hectares planted to vineyards cultivated on dry, rocky clay and limestone soils.
The winery 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.
Whats left is extremely concentrated and energetic fruit with zesty citrusy flavors that dance on the palate. Perfect harmony and structure with a dry backbone that lays the foundation for a wonderful aftertaste with remnants of bing cherries, nectarines and mango yogurt along with a refreshingly piercing acidity to round it out.
