Chateau Peyrassol Rosé 2017
|Region||France, Provence, Coteaux d'Aix-en-Provence|
90-92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate Potentially one of the top rosés of the vintage, the 2017 Cotes de Provence Rose Cuvee de la Commanderie was still on the lees when I tasted it at the beginning of March 2018. A blend of 45% Cinsault, 29% Grenache, 15% Syrah, 6% Rolle and 5% Mourvèdre, it's spicy and complex, with more weight and texture than most. Concentrated cinnamon, allspice and clove notes linger on the finish, more savory than fruity. (JC) (6/2018)
From a selection of old vines, this concentrated wine is rich, full of spice, pepper and bold red-fruit flavors. It is intense with both acidity and fruitiness, a tangy wine that finishes with a tight bite of lemon zest. Drink now.
