Wine Style Guide

Light & Fruity

Red wines that are more fruit-forward and lighter in tannin and body.

Smooth & Supple

Medium bodied reds that go down easy, with smooth tannins and supple fruit.

Earthy & Spicy

Wines where earthy and/or spicy dominate the flavors – typically medium to full body.

Big & Bold

Full bodied wines that have concentrated fruit and are higher in alcohol and/or tannins. Some need age.

Winemaker's Notes

Owned and farmed by the Perrin family of Château de Beaucastel fame, this Vinsobres Les Hauts de Julien comes from a single plot of very old vines - 90 years - which, quite unusually, was co-planted with Syrah and Grenache. The Hauts de Julien is 50% Syrah and 50% Grenache.

Deep purple in color. Red licorice and blueberry - thick, multilayered fruit. Lots of meaty tannins and a very, very long juicy blueberry finish.

Quite a good match with Mediterranean dishes, especially those with black olives.

Critical Acclaim

"The 2004 Perrin et Fils Cotes du Rhone-Villages Vinsobres Vieilles Vignes Les Hauts de Julien, which in this vintage comes from equal parts Syrah and Grenache with the Syrah aged in small barrels and the Grenache in tank, is another stunning wine with plenty of raspberry, cherry, creme de cassis, and floral notes and that striking minerality that seems to be a part of this appellation. A pretty full-bodied wine for a 2004, with good underlying acidity and ripe tannin, it should drink beautifully for a decade. "
