Probably known most for their iconic wine, Beaucastel Chateauneuf du Pape, the Perrin family has a long history in making wine in the Southern Rhone Valley. The family has many different wines and labels they produce; taking the stance as the leading organic wine grower in the Southern Rhone. The family has currently been making wine in the area for over five generations and continues to be a family run operation. With a commitment to making wine through as natural a process as possible, the brand has gained worldwide recognition for producing top quality wines. Their philosophy is to keep the winemaking process as manual and as close to the earth as allowable. Representing the true essence of the terroir in each wine they make is the goal.
Two of the lesser expensive labels they produce are the Famille Perrin series and the La Vieille Ferme series. Both of these lines are currently being featured as our Wine of the Month program at WVLM. Both are very high quality products at a very reasonable price point!
From the Famille Perrin series we will be featuring the Cotes du Rhone Nature rouge (which is certified organic) and the Cotes du Rhone Blanc Reserve.
Cotes du Rhone Nature- This wine is comprised of mostly Grenache and a little Syrah and Mourvedre sourced from two different vineyards, Prebois (Clay) and Vinsobres (Quartz and marl limestone). The wine is a classic example of a Cotes du Rhone, fruit forward with well integrated tannins!
Cotes du Rhone Blanc Reserve- This wine is a blend of Clairette, bourboulenc, Viognier and Grenache Blanc. The clay and limestone soils give this wine a nice balance of floral, fruity notes accompanied by a strong presence of minerality.
La Vieille Ferme wines will be offered in a white, red and rose. These wines are the most affordable and are sourced from the Ventoux and Luberon appellations. The wines are made from varietals typical to the region, and are made with the same attention given to all of the Perrin Family projects, resulting in a high quality product for a very reasonable price.
