Wine of the Day: Commanderie de Peyrassol Rose

This time of year has officially started Rose season, and Provence, France does it the very best. Founded in the 13th century by the Knights Templar in Cotes du Provence, Commanderie de Peyrassol Rose ($25) shines as a leading example of why the southern coast of France, highly influenced by the Mediterranean Sea and the Mistral winds, is so ideal for creating gorgeous Rose wine. Highly aromatic, the pale pink wine layers lilac, lavender, wild thyme, ripe strawberry, and raspberry, with a touch of stone fruit and crushed stone.
