Famille Perrin Nature Côtes du Rhône Rouge - 2015

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!

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.
Description
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.

Tasting
This Côtes-du-Rhône 2015 is like a bowl of very dense and ripe black and red fruit. Notes of crushed strawberries, raspberry jam, balanced by a beautiful freshness of spices from Provence and its Garrigues. On the palate, this wine is beautifully balanced in richness and freshness, a good structure with fine and elegant tannins. The finish is long and aromatic.
