Classic Côtes du Rhône, this wine is organic. Grenache and Syrah complement each other in this soft wine with aromas of red fruit and Garrigue. The finish is velvety. Organic is good!
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.
Certified organic by Ecocert, Perrin Nature is not only an organic Côtes du Rhône but also a great wine. Using our experience in organic farming at Beaucastel (one of the first big estates to turn to organic farming 40 years ago), this wine is a beautiful expression of fruit with delicate and soft tannins.
This wine comes from a vineyard located between Valréas and Vaison la Romaine, north of Orange. The vineyard is planted in Grenache and Syrah.
