With Special Guest Marc Perrin
CEO and 5th Generation Family Member
March 5, 2021 4pm Eastern, 3pm Central
Join us as we explore the world of the Southern Rhône Valley with a family (“famille”) whose history has been one with this sun-drenched region for 5 generations. This tasting is ideal for lovers of the generosity, rich fruit and warmth of Rhône blends. The Perrins are masters of these wines, and the leading organic growers of the Southern Rhône Valley. The most famous Perrin estates include the legendary Château de Beaucastel Châteauneuf-du-Pape, Miraval Côtes de Provence Rosé and the eminently accessible La Vieille Ferme.
Marc Perrin, with Export Director Emmanuel Lemoine, will lead us through a tasting of three very different red wines, demonstrating the amazing scope of his family’s expertise.
- Coudoulet de Beaucastel, often called “baby Beaucastel”, a sensational Côtes-du-Rhône just on the other side of the A7 motorway from Beaucastel, with very similar soils
- The cru “Les Cornuds” from Vinsobres, the most northern vineyard of the southern Rhône
- Les Sinards, the “other Châteauneuf-du-Pape” in the Perrin family, made from young Beaucastel vines and surrounding vineyards
