Famille Perrin Nature Côtes du Rhône Rouge - 2018

Presentation

The vintage
The 2018 vintage is characterised by exceptional weather conditions. Flowering took place in the best possible conditions, with a historically abundant grape output. A few rainy episodes at the end of the spring complicated things a little with an attack of mildew, but the good weather then settled down until harvest, which took place under idyllic conditions.The wines are beautiful.
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.

This wine comes from a vineyard located between Valréas and Vaison la Romaine, north of Orange. The vineyard is planted in Grenache and Syrah.

Chalky clay soils.
Process
In our Famille Perrin cellar. Traditional vinification after destalking. Fermentation in stainless steel tanks with temperature regulation of 150 hl. Ageing in tanks and foudres (25%) for a year.

Tasting advices

Tasting notes
A beautiful 2017 vintage with great maturity. The nose reveals a beautiful expression of Grenache quite ripe without being tannic. Rich in the mouth, it offers a nice complexity with aromas of spices, garrigue, blackcurrant and white pepper.
