Item no. 46261
Jean Pierre and Francois Perrin have taken particular care that this Cotes du Rhone meets their stringent standards of excellence. As proprietors of Chateau de Beaucastel in Chateauneuf-du-Pape, the Perrin family has demonstrated exceptionally high standards for nearly a century.
The Rouge originates from a significant portion of the Perrin's own vineyards, including those at Château Grand Prebois. Produced from 60% Grenache, 20% Syrah, 10% Mourvèdre, and 10% Cinsault, some of which are flash-heated using the same methods as those at Château de Beaucastel, the fruit is rich and jammy with peppery spice, concentration and intensity.
"Lots of personality in this medium-bodied, earth driven, traditional red. Digs into the soil and comes out with the goods: nice fruit, wet stones and mineral complexity in a subtle but ripe package. Chewy but sweet tannins on the lingering, distinctive, fresh finish. Drink now through 2006."
