Story

The vintage
The years in 9 regularly mark the memory of winegrowers and this vintage was no exception. After an early bud burst in early April, flowering was gradual and took place in good conditions in all the vineyards. Then a hot summer began in late June, which the vines bravely resisted: they suffered little from water stress, thanks to the chamomile herbal infusions we sprayed on the vegetation to cope with the heat. Finally, the harvest went as usual, without any particular precocity. The wines are promising; a vintage in 9 is born, once again, under a lucky star.
Description
Certified Ecocert, Perrin Nature is both an "organic" Côtes-du-Rhône and a great wine. Stemming from our experience in organic farming (Beaucastel was one of the first major French estates to turn to organic farming 40 years ago), this wine is delicious with notes of fresh fruit.
Situation
This wine is produced from our vineyard Le Grand Prébois in Orange.
Terroir
Clay and limestone soils.
Process
The grapes are harvested early in the morning to benefit from the freshness of the night. The proximity of the vines to the Grand Prébois cellars allows the grapes to be pressed straight after picking. After pressing, the juices are cold settled in order to remove suspended particles. The alcoholic fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks and lasts about 15 days, the temperatures are regulated between 14 and 16 ° C. The wines are then racked and aged in stainless steel tanks until bottling.
Varietals
Grenache noir

"Lots of strawberry, orange blossom, and spice notes emerge from the 2019 Côtes Du Rhône Reserve Rosé, and it’s a medium-bodied, Provençal, complex rosé that has good freshness as well as richness. It’s ideal for tapas or a meal starter and should be enjoyed over the coming 6-12 months."
