Côtes-du-Rhône Blanc, Famille Perrin

Côtes-du-Rhône Blanc, Famille Perrin

Famille Perrin is one of the most recognisable names in the Southern Rhône. The fifth and sixth generations of the family now manage the extensive vineyard holdings and grower partnerships that stretch across the region, from Vinsobres to the Ventoux.

VINEYARDS

The Perrin family manage the vineyards for their Côtes-du-Rhône wines. The fruit for the Côtes-du-Rhône Blanc is sourced from the clay-limestone soils of Cairanne and Jonquières, giving the wine a mineral freshness.

VINTAGE

After an early budburst in April, flowering was gradual with good conditions across all vineyards. Summer was hot, with high temperatures in June. Good water reserves and spraying in the vineyards meant the vines did not suffer hydric stress. The grapes were harvested as usual during September.

VINIFICATION

The grapes were harvested early in the morning in order to retain freshness and aromatics. After pressing, the juices were cold settled in order to remove suspended particles. Fermentation took place in stainless steel tanks over a period of15 days at controlled temperatures of 16°C. The wine was then racked and aged in stainless-steel tanks until bottling.

Tasting notes

In the glass, this wine is an elegant ruby-red. It has a very attractive and expressive nose with notes of redcurrant and peppery spices. Soft and balanced on the palate with ripe tannins and good acidity, the concentrated red fruit and sweet spice flavours linger on the finish.
