Famille Perrin Réserve Côtes du Rhône Rosé - 2015

A faithful expression of Côtes du Rhône Rosé, keep this wine on hand to enjoy during the summer.

Story

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.

Reviews

87/100
"This fruit-driven, medium-bodied rosé is a perennially worthy addition to the cooler of poolside staples. Hints of peach and raspberry are ripe but restrained, with just enough thirst-quenching acidity on the finish"
