Famille Perrin Réserve Côtes du Rhône Blanc - 2015

Characteristic of Viognier and its floral notes, this is a wine with an incredible freshness and great depth. It will be a wonderful match for Mediterranean dishes and fish.

Presentation

The vintage
2015 was a magnificent year in the south as well, characterized by excellent sanitary conditions thanks to the mild, wet winter, followed by a relatively hot, dry spring. The vines coped well with the extreme heat and lack of rain in the summer thanks to good hydric reserves. Following satisfactory flowering, rapid and regular ripening was assisted by rain that fell in August, producing berries rich in phenolic compounds and anthocyanins. As in the north, harvesting took place under excellent conditions.
