Côtes du Rhône, Rhone, France
Perrin 2016 CdR Villages rouge originates from different terroirs in Côtes du Rhône Villages, this wine is one of the most faithful illustrations of the Southern Rhône Valley. The 2016 vintage in the Southern Rhone valley is exceptional, both in terms of quality and quantity, thanks to idyllic weather conditions that protected the region from climatic accidents throughout the whole year.
On the nose, this wine reveals notes of black fruit (cherries) and spices. The mouth is fresh, harmonious with a dense and soft structure, firm but very fine tannins, ripe fruit enhanced with peppery notes and a nice length.
“Inviting black-cherry and plum flavors are nuanced by layers of bramble, garrigue and forest floor in this impeccably balanced wine. Black-fruit characteristics are ripe and pristine, finishing on fine-grained tannins and a peppering of sweet anise. It’s a fantastic value to enjoy now through 2021.” 91 Pts – Wine Enthusiast Best Buy
“Focused, with a racy singed sandalwood spine running through the core of lightly mulled cherry and plum fruit. A minerally edge cuts through the finish nicely. Drink now through 2020.” 90 Pts – Wine Spectator
