Story

The wine
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 has great freshness combining fruity and floral aromas.
The vintage
2021 is a vintage marked by freshness, which is similar to the vintages we had in the eighties and nineties. It is also what we call a "winegrower vintage", human intervention and the care given to the vines were decisive for the quality of the vintage. Marked by climatic vagaries, with an episode of frost in April and interrupted harvest because of rain, this year has indeed required constant investment from our teams in the vineyard. Their attention and their commitment have borne their fruit: this vintage is very promising with lots of freshness and great balance.
Location
The vineyard is located in the northern part of Côtes du Rhône, on the locality of Vinsobres and its surroundings.
Terroir
Stones, gravelly clay and limestone soils.
Ageing
The grapes are harvested early in the morning to preserve their freshness. After pressing, the juices are cold settled in order to remove suspended particles. The alcoholic fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks with controlled temperatures of 16 ° C. The wines are then racked and aged in stainless steel tanks until bottling.
