Famille Perrin Vinsobres Les Cornuds 2008
Rhone Red Blends from Rhone, France
Dark with purple undertones. Intense on notes of violet, black fruit and spice, black pepper and licorice. In the mouth, it is round, full-bodied, with huge finesse and elegant tannins. Very fresh.
The Wine Advocate - "The 2008 Cotes du Rhone-Villages Vinsobres Les Cornuds comes from high elevation vineyards planted in one of the southern Rhone’s coolest micro-climates. This fresh wine displays a cool, leafy, minty element to its red currant and red cherry fruit. Crisp acidity along with a Burgundian style suggest it will drink well for 4-5 years.
Range: 87-89 "

About France - Other regionsWhen it comes to wine, France is a classic. Classic blends, grapes and styles began in the country and they still remain. Think about it - people ask for a Burgundian style Pinot Noir, they refer to wines as Bordeaux or Rhone blends - Champagne even had to pass a law to stop international wineries from putting their region on the label of all sparkling wine.
The top regions of France are: Bordeaux, Burgundy, Champagne, Languedoc-Roussillon, Loire, Rhone. And these regions are so diverse! It makes sense that wine regions throughout the world try to emulate their style. Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah are no longer French varieties, but international varieties. They may not be the leader of cutting edge technology or value-priced wines, but there is no doubt that they are still producing wines of great quality and diversity.
