It’s the season for bbq’s, white clothing and of course, ROSE! If you’re looking for your first pink sip of the summer, look no further.
Commanderie de Peyrassol estate, located in the foothills of the Massif des Maures in Provence, has recently marked its 20th anniversary under the ownership of Philippe Austruy.
To commemorate this joyous occasion, the estate has recently undergone several new enhancements. Commanderie de Peyrassol redesigned the estate’s art collection, inclusive of both sculptures and paintings, and updated its temporary exhibition. Its cellar has been renovated by architect Charles Berthier and changes have occurred at fine dining restaurant Chez Jeanette, now led by 2-Michelin star chef Michel Portos alongside chef Guillaume Delaune. An organic farm has been created and produce is used at the restaurant. With a plethora of activities to do on Commanderie de Peyrassol, it is a top destination for the summer.
A new rosé wine is being added to the Peyrassol collection. La Bastide Peyrassol (SRP $29) reflects the estate’s natural tones and colors. In tandem with Commanderie de Peyrassol’s extensive emphasis on contemporary art, the team partnered with renowned designer Pierre Yovanovitch to curate the wine’s innovative bottle design and free-flow label and luxury glass bottle manufacturer Saverglass to produce the bottle. Light and airy, this rosé perfectly emulates its Provençal origin. The wine has a smooth and velvety feel, emitting fresh and fruity notes. The refreshing taste of La Bastide Peyrassol makes it a great pairing for savory poultry dishes with tangy or sweet elements.
