It is no coincidence Famille Perrin is the leading organic wine grower of the Southern Rhône Valley where they occupy the region’s best terroirs. Their values have given them a worldwide reputation for excellence: absolute respect for the soil, a commitment to manual methods and a deep belief that organic viticulture is the only way to express the true essence of the terroir. Moreover the combination of talents within the family ensures the continuation of their unique expertise. Nature and tradition are key to the Famille Perrin way and this approach has continued seamlessly over five generations.
A 50-50 blend of Grenache and Syrah, the 2018 Vinsobres les Cornuds features tarry notes and dark flavors of tapenade allied to brighter fruit notes. Medium to full-bodied, it’s firm, crisp and slightly dusty on the finish, in need of a bit more time. [88-90 Points, Joe Czerwinski – August 2019, robertparker.com]
