Famille Perrin Cotes du Rhone Reserve 2012

Famille Perrin Cotes du Rhone Reserve 2012

Sku: 033187

A beautiful deep red hue that seems almost opaque. The nose shows caramel and spices that mingle with red berry fruit. The palate is full and deep, with fine tannins and good length.

Perrin Réserve Rouge is sourced in our own vineyards of Grand Prébois (40 hectares/99 acres) and Vinsobres (45 hectares/111 acres), as well as from vineyards that we lease under long-term contracts. All these plots are managed and supervised by the Beaucastel team.

2010: 88 Points - Robert Parker, Wine Advocate: "Another top value is the 2010 Cotes du Rhone Reserve red, a blend of 50% Grenache from their vineyards at Grand Prebois (adjacent to the Beaucastel estate), 20% Syrah from further north in Vinsobres, and the balance Carignan, Cinsault and other permitted grapes. The wine offers abundant amounts of red and black fruits intermixed with hints of tobacco leaf, earthy soil, pepper and spice. This supple-textured, delicious red is exactly what one expects of a very good Cotes du Rhone. "

2010: 88 Points - Josh Raynolds, Steve Tanzer's International Wine Cellars: " Deep ruby. Cherry and dark berries on the pungent nose. Offers gently sweet blackberry and cherry flavors and picks up slight bitterness with air. Finishes on a smoky note, with good energy and a touch of bitter cherry. "
