Famille Perrin Côtes du Rhône Villages Rouge shows a typical expression of southern Rhone. This vintage produced very balanced wines with great finesse.
The vintage started with a long winter and one of the driest ones in the past years followed by an non-existent Spring. The crop development was very slow due to important climatic variations. The winemakers’ work was therefore crucial to get good quality grapes in small quantities. 2013 was a complicated vintage and late but is wonderfully balanced and is very promising. Dark ruby in colour, with purple reflections. The nose is intense with aromas of macerated cherries and licorice. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied with a generous attack, yet also has a pleasant freshness and elegant tannins. This well-balanced wine shows a typical expression of Southern Rhone wine with its thyme and rosemary aftertaste. Best of all, this vintage produced very balanced wines with intense notes of fruit and great finesse. Serve this wine next to a Sunday Roast, Rosemary Lamb, Peking Duck, or roasted portobello mushroom dishes.
