Famille Perrin Vacqueyras Les Christins 2020
Famille Perrin Vacqueyras Les Christins
Famille Perrin Vacqueyras Les Christins is a dark ruby colour, the nose is intense and savoury on notes of red fruit.
Balanced and complex in the mouth, the tannins are silky on notes of blackberries, blackcurrants, licorice, and herbes of Provence.
A fine and elegant Vacqueyras that reflects the harmony and wisdom of the old Grenache.
The ideal match for this wine is a leg of venison with Gentian, sautéed potatoes with onions and garlic.
Famille Perrin consists of two generations, nine brothers, sisters and cousins who share the tasks and decisions under a philosophy of excellence initiated by Jacques Perrin.
The legendary cuvée "Hommage à Jacques Perrin ", a tribute to him, is the only non Bordeaux French wine to be distributed by Bordeaux negociants alongside the Premiers Crus Classés.
Associated with the world's finest wine producing families, Famille Perrin is a member of the Primum Familiae Vini association since 2006.
Jean -Pierre and François Perrin said: "We never followed the trends! We are pleased to see that the decisions made by the successive generations are now the source of the success of our family.
To follow through with your ideas, sometimes in disregard of the ideas of other people, is a way to assert its own identity but also means taking the risk of being misunderstood.
Or that people think you are crazy! Only the result counts and this award proves that this strength of character, without any concession, becomes today a must-have to make great wines."
Famille Perrin’s Vacqueyras is a beautiful example of Grenache based wines from the Southern Rhône Valley, with an impressive aromatic expression, structured body and great ageing potential.
An 8 hectare vineyard farmed and run by the Beaucastel team. Located on the Commune of Sarrians, south of the Dentelles de Montmirail. Old vines (average age of 50 years). It has stony terraces on clay and sandy soils.
