This blend comes from the oldest grapes in the domaine. Their low yield produces full-bodied grapes which bear the hallmark qualities of the terroir.
The grapes (Syrah, Cinsault, Grenache, Ugni Blanc and Rolle) are picked when the temperature is coolest and are rapidly transported to the wine store to be vinified at the peak of their freshness. During these operations the juice is protected from oxidation. The wines are then aged in stainless steel vats for 6 months.
Pale in colour, with soft rose-tinted overtones, Château Peyrassol radiates freshness. Its subtle nose of citrus, vine peach, apricot and fine floral notes is inviting. It has a beautiful, dense palate, delicate and lively, and is notable for its balance and full body, punctuated by a long, fruity finish.It is the perfect accompaniment to fish soups, carpaccios and all varieties of grilled fish, but will also add sparkle to red berry desserts.
The Peyrassol wine storehouse, built from ancestral stone, contains the latest equipment which allows vinification to be performed with a high degree of precision. While remaining true to tradition, the domaine has adapted to the major advances in winemaking, combining these with the expertise of a highly capable team which oversees the operations.
The wines of Peyrassol express to perfection the quality of the terroir and several centuries of know-how. 1204, Clos Peyrassol and Château Peyrassol are three AOC Côtes de Provence lineages which are classed amongst the top grands crus in their AOC category and represent the very essence of Provence. Fresh, refined and delicate, they will provide the perfect accompaniment to shared occasions and moments of relaxation, and will surprise you with their powerful and harmonious aromas.
Through the development of prestigious wine expertise, we have developed under the brand Peyrassol wines that meet our DNA. Cuvée des Commandeurs and #LOU come from a rigorous selection of terroirs, grape varieties and fruits. Every winemaking steps are achieved in the respect of the highest level of quality.
Founded in the 13th century by the Knights Templar, the Commanderie de Peyrassol covers an area of some 850 hectares dotted with oaks and olive groves, with 92 hectares dedicated to growing grapes. Thanks to its outstanding natural location the Commanderie was a favoured staging post and a place of rest for pilgrims on their way to the Holy Land.
At an elevation of 330 metres on the lower slopes of the Massif des Maures, the vineyard sits on a clay and limestone soil which is ideal for viticulture. Since the first varieties were planted by the Templars some 800 years ago, generations of wine growers have applied their know-how to nurturing the vineyard and its wines through the dedicated cultivation of this exceptional terroir.
Since 2003 Alban Cacaret has managed the Commanderie de Peyrassol alongside his uncle, Philippe Austruy, who has owned the estate since 2001. Together they have restored the domaine to its former glory and have made Peyrassol one of the most respected vineyards in Provence.
