When Vinous released their annual Rose report this year, the entire first page of the highest scored wines seemed like a dedication to Peyrassol. It is abundantly clear who is running the show in Provence these days.
This new estate cuvée was created on the 20th anniversary of the acquisition of the Commanderie de Peyrassol by Philippe Austruy. The very soul of the estate, La Bastide reflects the colours of Peyrassol’s terroir. Its unique bottle and free-form label, created by the designer Pierre Yovanovitch, combine authenticity and modernity in perfect harmony with this wine which reveals the purity of fruit without any distraction.
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.
This special bottling is a fantastic Provence representation. Soft in color, reminiscent of rose petals, it has an inviting nose of fresh flowers intertwined with delicate and tasty fruit. The nose supports the palate with fresh, typical fruit notes characteristic of the grape varieties. The wine’s lingering velvety profile takes over the whole palate before moving to a delicate, thirst-quenching finish.

Light orange-pink. Mineral accented red berry and citrus fruit aromas are complemented by subtle floral and botanical herbal accents. Juicy and animated on the palate, offering fresh cherry, raspberry and blood orange flavors that deepen with air and take on a spicy nuance. The mineral and floral notes repeat on the lingering finish, which echoes the citrus note.
