As the weather warms and Spring seems to be rapidly approaching, I thought it would be an excellent time to start popping open some big bottles of 2019 Rosés.
For the first taste of the year, I’ve decided on an annual favorite of mine: Château Peyrassol in the Var region of the Côtes de Provence. The Estate was originally founded by the Knights Templar in the Middle Ages, with the first recorded harvest being 1256. The wines were first marketed and bottled in the late 70s, and were more heavily invested-in and expanded following a sale of the estate in 2001.
The “Château Peyrassol” cuvée is comprised of the Estate’s oldest vines and is always a fresh, lively, classic example of good Provençal Rosé. Balanced, with lovely fruit-and-floral harmonies, it’s a refreshing quaff.
Hope to see you this week!
