Famille Perrin Luberon Blanc

AOC Luberon (France), White 2011

An aperitif wine or to accompany simple cuisine, a great everyday white wine!

Presentation

The vintage
The 2011 vintage is a vintage of contrasts. That is to say an unusually hot, dry spring followed by a wet and rainy beginning of July and then an Indian summer lasting until the end of October. Carefully sorting and destemming the harvest allowed for a great vintage, particularly for the late harvest varieties.
Description
If you enjoy quaffable wines, this is an ideal one for an aperitif or with a simple cuisine
Situation
Mainly within the Parc Regional du Luberon, which is equidistant from Avignon, Aix-en-Provence and Manosque.
The average altitude of the vineyards is 300 metres/1000 feet above sea-level, and the grapes are harvested relatively late.

Terroir
Old alluvial deposits of round and flat stones, calcareous marl and patches of clay created by alluvial alpine flows.
Process
The grapes are lightly crushed, then pressed in a pneumatic press, prior to clarification of the must and cool fermentation.
This takes place in vats for 90% of the blend, with 10% fermented in new oak barrels with lees-stirring.
In stainless steel tanks until the month of January, when the wine is bottled after fining.
Grapes
Bourboulenc : 30%
Grenache : 30%
Ugni blanc : 30%
Roussanne : 10%
