Famille Perrin 2013 Les Christins Vacqueyras
Grenache, Syrah | Alc: 13.5% – Supple & Smooth
Vacqueyras, Rhone, France
Perrin 2013 Les Christins Vacqueyras is produced on a very clayey terroir with stones from the Ouvèze river, the Grenache is dominant and develops a fleshy wine. Its typical aromas of chocolate, cherry and fig match beautifully with the Syrah (violet, spice, licorice).
“Deep ruby. Mineral-accented dark berries, licorice and pungent flowers on the highly perfumed nose. Smooth and concentrated, offering ripe black raspberry and floral pastille flavors complicated by a dark chocolate quality that sneaks in on the back half. Sweet and focused on the clinging finish, which shows very good clarity and round, harmonious tannins” 91 Pts – Vinous / Antonio Galloni
