Peyrassol from Provence

Peyrassol from Provence

La de da, the French take the cake in a lot of sectors of wine. In my opinion. Many other regions are growing on me immensely, but French wine does offer some incredible terroir, tradition and pizazz. As I was sipping on La Cuvée de la Commanderie from Peyrassol in Provence, I started to become more and more curious about France’s largest Rose producing region and in some cases oldest wine producing region. Rose is very popular, but some rose’s knock your socks off. Props to Peyrassol.

Provence is a region in Southeastern France. I did a little research about two hefty glasses  in and found myself on WineFolly.com, a spectacular resource for all things wine. Here is the link to the WineFolly website for more information on this spectacular coastal region of France that borders Italy and the Mediterranean Sea (sounds like heaven to me?).

This particular bottle of wine comes from the foothills of Massif de Maures. This Cuvee is made from Cinsault, Syrah, Grenache and Mourvèdre (all red wine grapes). The Peyrassol website describes a stainless steal aging process.

This bottle of wine can be purchased, that I know of, in the Los Angeles area at Silverlake Wine. Follow them on Instagram for weekly tastings, and a global array of innovative winemakers and extremely appealing wine labels.

Enjoy this chilled and I would probably devour a melon, tomato and burrata salad to pair.
