Famille Perrin Nature Côtes du Rhône Rouge - 2016

The vintage
The 2016 vintage in the Southern Rhone valley is exceptional, both in terms of quality and quantity, thanks to idyllic weather conditions that protected the region from climatic accidents throughout the whole year.

Tasting advices

Tasting notes
This Côtes-du-Rhône 2016 is like a bowl of very dense and ripe black and red fruit. Notes of crushed strawberries, 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.
