2018 Famille Perrin Cotes du Rhone Reserve Rouge S. Rhone
The Vintage: The 2018 vintage is characterised by exceptional weather conditions. Flowering took place in the best possible conditions, with a historically abundant grape output. A few rainy episodes at the end of the spring complicated things a little with an attack of mildew, but the good weather then settled down until harvest, which took place under idyllic conditions.The wines are beautiful.
Description: "Cotes de Rhone par Excellence". Fruity and fleshy with beautiful tannins, its a great everyday wine.
Situation: The wine is a blend of Grenache (mainly from our Prebois vineyard in Orange), Syrah from further north (from our vineyard in Vinsobres) and Mourvedre.
Terrior: The vineyard of Prebois has clayey limestone soils covered with stones. In Vinsobres the terraces are rich in quartz and marl limestone.
Process: The harvest is sorted and destemmed. Vinification then takes place in stainless steel and oak. Ageing in tanks and Foudre (25%) for a year.
Tasting Notes: Pretty deep colour. The nose offers a beautiful aromatic complexity, marked by Grenache and a hint of black currant bought by the ripe Syrah. On the palate, it shows complexity with tannins still present, but with finesse and elegance, and a beautiful freshness.
