    Item no. 113811

    Winemaker's Notes:

    Nearly black with purple undertones. The nose is spectacular, very complex, intense and deep on notes of gentian, licorice, cyprus trees and pink pepper. Powerful and very structured with dense tannins.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Speaking of contrasts, the exuberance of the Grenache grape is well-displayed in the Perrin et Fils 2009 Vacqueyras Cristins. A blend of 80% Grenache and 20% Syrah, it possesses abundant amounts of kirsch liqueur, licorice, lavender, garrigue, pepper and spice as well as full body and excellent richness. This great value should drink nicely for 7-8 years.
    Range: 90-92

    This can be a somewhat edgy wine, but the warmth of 2009 has softened it, imparting a rich, velvety texture and flavors of dried cherries, leather, cinnamon and clove. the long finish features a chocolaty note.

    Bright ruby. High-pitched red fruit and floral aromas are complicated by notes of anise, black tea and white pepper. At once ripe and energetic, with very good depth and focus to its sappy black raspberry and licorice flavors. Puts on weight with air and closes on an appealingly sweet note, with very good persistence.
