Perrin, Côtes du Rhône Réserve
Famille Perrin’s involvement in the wine trade can be traced back to 1909, when Pierre Traminer bought the Château de Beaucastel and then transferred it to his son-in-law Pierre Perrin, a scientist who further developed Beaucastel. His son, Jacques, continued his father’s efforts and continued to expand the family’s holdings until 1978. Today the torch is being carried by Jean-Pierre and François, Jacques’ sons. Marc, Pierre, Thomas, Cécile, Charles, Matthieu, and César, the fifth generation, work today with them.
Pretty deep color. The nose offers a beautiful aromatic complexity, marked by Grenache and a hint of black currant brought by the ripe Syrah. On the palate, it shows complexity with tannins still present, but with finesse and elegance, and a beautiful freshness.
