Famille Perrin Réserve Côtes du Rhône
You can't go wrong with the Southern Rhône, which is on a roll with a string of outstanding vintages. This juicy blend from the celebrated Perrin family is a gem, with floral, red plum and fresh rye bread fruit and chocolate and spice notes. Delicious with Mediterranean-style pizza or hearty lamb stew.
Classic Côtes du Rhône. Fruity and fleshy with beautiful tannins, it’s a great everyday wine made almost exclusively from our Grand Prébois vineyards (for the Grenache) and our Vinsobres vineyards (for the Syrah).
Aging The harvest date is determined by checking the ripeness of the grapes with analysis and tasting the berries. As soon as they arrive at the winery, the grapes are sorted and destemmed. The fermentation takes place in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks between 150hl and 190hl. The extraction is done by pumping over and the frequency is determined by tasting. After racking and malolactic fermentation, the wines are transferred partly to oak barrels and partly to stainless steel vats where they will be aged for a year.Food Pairing Serve at 18°C with beef, lamb or poultry
