Summer is Coming: Stock Up on Peyrassol's Perfect Provençal Rosés

If Monday's 88° and sunny wasn’t enough of a harbinger of summer for you, the arrival of Flatiron’s favorite warm weather wines — rosés direct from Provence's Peyrassol — should do the trick. Because we don’t all have backyard pools, the best refreshment we know is a glass of crisp, ice-cold rosé. Who better to take inspiration from than the denizens of the South of France?

Wine has been made at Peyrassol for 800 years. That’s a lot of time in which to perfect your recipe. And they've got it down. As New York Times’ Eric Asimov has noted, Peyrassol makes “the archetypal Provençal rosé” wines that are “especially delicious” with an “underlying mineral edge”. But you know this already — we’ve featured their pale pink cuvées for many years now. There’s a good chance these are already your house wines come summertime.

The 2023 vintage has arrived just in the nick of time, and it's classic: after a dry start to the year the region got some much needed rain in the early summer and then progressed to harvest healthy, beautiful fruit. The wines are delicious, spot-on summer gems, and we’re beyond thrilled to welcome summer with special pricing:

Château Peyrassol, Méditerranée Rosé 'La Croix Des Templiers', 2023 $19.99
50% Cinsault, 40% Grenache, 8% Syrah and 2% Carignan from Peyrassol holdings outside of the Côtes de Provence AOC (as well as some fruit purchased from partner vignerons), and a little bolder in color than the Commandeurs below. Crisp, salmon in color and delicately flavored with notes of tiny wild strawberries, fresh herbs and sea salt. Pairs with all your summer favorites: barbecued chicken, grilled veggies, Caprese salads and beyond. Or don't pair it: just enjoy a glass while you stare out the window and think about summer vacation.

Château Peyrassol, Côtes de Provence Rosé 'Cuvée Les Commandeurs', 2023 $27.99
A step up in elegance and complexity, this is light-colored and refined blend of Grenache (40%), Cinsault (30%), Syrah (15% ), Mourvèdre (5%) also has 10% Vermentino giving a unique sense of refinement. The vines are mostly planted in clay and limestone soils (and a bit of schist), keeping the fruit in check and amping up those savory mineral notes. Elevate your pairings — think salmon sushi, ceviche or the Provençal classic, bouillabaisse.
