AOP Côtes de Provence
Technical sheet #LOU Rosé
On the strength of our long experience in the production of Provence wines, we have developed our range by always favouring the permanent search for quality. We carefully select the best terroirs, the finest grapes and share best practices with our partner winegrowers to create authentic wines that reflect the DNA of Peyrassol.
The 2021 vintage
To say that the 2021 vintage was a long and quiet river would be a sweet joke! However, Peyrassol went through the ordeal without suffering adversity.
At the end of April, a historic frost from the northwest (-9°) hit the region. The vines, late, have not really bud. The loss was minimal.
Not a drop of rain all summer long! Deeply rooted, the Peyrassol vineyard has rather well resisted.
In mid-August, a fire of rare violence broke out in the plain of Le Luc, sowing desolation in its path. The mistral was kind for Peyrassol and repels the fire in the direction opposite.
At the beginning of September, a hail storm destroyed the entire harvest of the village of Pignan, just a few miles from the estate. Our hills have blocked this cloud!
Finally, floods ravage all the surrounding municipalities… but stop at the gates of Flassans!
And at the end, the ultimate reward with an exceptional quality of musts and wines.
A pale and delicate pink. Notes of small wild berries mingle on the nose with a hint of juniper. This spicy touch supports the vivacity of the palate reminiscent of exotic citrus fruits. The wine is harmonious, clean and refreshing.
30 % Grenache – 25 % Cinsault – 20 % Syrah – 15 % Mourvèdre – 10 % Vermentino
Traditional, in temperature controlled stainless steel vats, after a delicate pneumatic pressing.
Full of charm, #LOU rosé is particularly enjoyable on its own or with Asian cuisine: Chinese jiaozi stuffed with pork or shrimps, steamed dim sum or Thai-style fried noodles.
Several months on fine lees in stainless steel vats, preserving the wine’s aromatic freshness..
To be enjoyed as of now.
