Le Clos Rosé, vin rosé de Provence de la Commanderie de Peyrassol

Varieties and vinification

Tibouren, a very old Provençal variety, predominates and gives this great wine its personality. Grenache and Rolle complete the blend.

Each variety, grown at low yield, is harvested by hand and vinified separately. On reaching the wine store the grapes are selected, crushed then gently pressed. The juice then takes on a delicate pink colour. After fermentation the wines are aged in stainless steel vats. Clos Peyrassol rosé expresses all the refinement of the greatest Côtes de Provence wines.

Tasting

Beneath its very delicate colour with hints of purple, Clos Peyrassol reveals a complex nose: notes of white flowers, heather and vine peach combine to form an elegant bouquet. The robust, rounded attack develops into a beautiful depth of palate. It is seductive in its smoothness and vivacity, its all-enveloping roundedness and its remarkably long-lasting aroma.

It offers a delicious accompaniment to a carpaccio of scallops with lime, braised prawns with Espelette pepper or grilled sea bream.
