Famille Perrin Châteauneuf du Pape - Les Sinards 2016

The other Châteauneuf of the family! For the most part Les Sinards is made from the young vines at Beaucastel and a neighboring vineyard we farm. Mostly Grenache, this is a classic Châteauneuf du Pape.

Tasting advices

Tasting notes
Intense red color with violet undertones. On the nose, it offers an intense bouquet of red and black fruit, sweet spices, noble wood and some mineral notes. The palate is balanced between freshness and softness with fine and elegant tannins and a very long finish.
Serving tips
15°C in big glasses. Drink with game, truffles and mushrooms.

Reviews and Awards

"“Drawn from a number of parcels around the appellation and including young-vine fruit from Beaucastel, the 2016 Chateauneuf du Pape les Sinards is a fruit-forward, juicy, mouthwatering effort to enjoy over its first decade. Cherry and raspberry fruit come together easily in this full-bodied, plush, supple wine. 2018-2028.”"
"The entry-level, younger vine 2016 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Les Sinards is classic, offering plenty of peppery herbs, red and black fruits, spice, and a touch of new saddle leather. It's medium-bodied, silky, and balanced, and shows how terrific this vintage was for the region."
"Châteauneuf is a tricky style of wine to buy because so many are disappointing, because good grapes cost more than this! Les Sinards is however, worth every penny!"
