Famille Perrin Châteauneuf du Pape - Les Sinards 2019

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


The wine
Les Sinards is generally made from the young vines from Beaucastel as well as farmed vines located near Beaucastel.
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.

Molasse seabed of the Miocene period covered by diluvial alpine deposits (pebbles). A plot that lies on Urgonien limestone.
As of August, we carry out maturity checks and berry tastings to determine the optimal date for harvest. Each grape variety is harvested separately. When they arrive at the winery, the grapes are sorted. Part of the Syrah is vinified in whole bunches, the other part as well as the Grenache are destemmed. The Châteauneuf-du-Pape wines are vinified using the same process as the wines of Château de Beaucastel. After vinification, the wines are tasted to define the blend. Finally, they are aged in oak foudres for 2 years.

Tasting notes
Superb colour of a bright ruby- red. The nose is intoxicating with notes of fresh plums and sweet spices. Complex and rich, the palate is soft with aromas of raspberries and pepper and offers a long elegant finish.
