Famille Perrin - Les Crus


• Presentation

The other Châteauneuf of the family! For the most part Les Sinards is made from the young vines at Beaucastel and a neighbouring vineyard we farm. Mostly Grenache, this is a classic Châteauneuf du Pape.
› The vintage

In 2010, all the right conditions were united to produce an exceptional vintage.
Heavy rainfall during spring, followed by a very hot summer and an Indian summer in September allowed for great harvest conditions.
This vintage produced very balanced wines on intense notes of fruit with a great finesse.

• Reviews and Awards

"Lush and inviting, with smoldering black tea weaving through the fleshy layers of melted fig, hoisin sauce, plum preserves and blackberry pudding. The dark ganache-coated finish has serious grip. Best from 2014 through 2025." [+]
Note: 93/100

Fresh red berries and cherry on the intensely fragrant nose. Sappy, palate-coating black raspberry and bitter cherry flavors are complemented by suave lavender and anise notes and lifted by a peppery quality. Finishes seamless and sweet, with very good breadth and spicy persistence. [+]
Note: 90-92/100

Lightly liquorice. Very smooth and polished texture. Not much grunt but certainly well mannered and competently made. Light finish. [+]
Note: 16/20

The 2010 Chateauneuf du Pape Les Sinards red is a blend of young Beaucastel vines and fruit from adjacent properties. It possesses a deep ruby/purple color as well as black cherry, licorice, garrigue, tobacco leaf and spice box characteristics. It is deep and medium to full-bodied with good acidity and freshness. [+]
Note: 88-90 /100

Bright ruby. Highly perfumed aromas of raspberry, cherry and dried flowers. Juicy and open-knit, offering lush red and dark berry compote flavors that pick up spiciness with air. Closes with very good energy and lift, with supple tannins lending shape and grip. [+]
Note: 91/100

Smooth and lush with ripe berries, plum, spice and depth; juicy and tangy with minerals, supple texture and a long, complex finish. Syrah, Mourvèdre, Grenache. [+]
Note: 92
