Presentation

The vintage
The 2016 vintage in the Southern Rhône 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.
Description
The Perrin Family, also owners of the famous Château de Beaucastel, search for the most suitable terroirs to produce a fresh and fruity wine. Unpretentious, this is the archetypal pleasure wine. Authentic, genuine and tasty.
Process
This is adapted to suit each wine, grape variety and producer. Nearly all the grapes are lightly crushed and fermented in cement vats of 150 and 300 hectolitres. The fermentation is classic and extended. The wine is kept in both vats and large oak barrels for ten months, then bottled in July.
Grapes
Carignan
Cinsault
Grenache
Syrah

Tasting advices

Tasting
Pretty red colour, with purple reflections. With lots of freshness, this 2016 vintage is the archetype of a wine that gives pleasure: authentic, sincere and tasty. It has notes of red and black fruit (blackberry, blackcurrant), rich and spicy. The mouth is fruity and full-bodied boosting the taste buds. Balanced, crisp, with silky tannins, the final has a beautiful aromatic persistence.
Service
17°C with a spontaneous meal and for enjoyment.
