Winemaker's Notes:

An exhuberant Rhone with a nose of violets and plums, this meaty, spicy, and peppery blend sings of warm summers in Southern France. It is a blend of 80% Grenache and 20% Mourvèdre that is aged 80% in tank and 20% in barrel - delicious and heady.
My Notes:

About Perrin et Fils:

Jean-Pierre, François and Pierre Perrin are proud to present their fine wines, inspired by the memory of their grandfather, Pierre Perrin. Using the same techniques employed at Château de Beaucastel, the Perrins have added some interesting appellations to their already impressive list of wines.

"Jean-Pierre and François Perrin - chosen among the Most Influential Wine Personalities of the last 20 Years. The Perrins believe in natural winemaking, unfiltered wines, and routinely produce long-lived classics that are among the finest in the world." -Robert M. Parker, Jr's The Wine Advocate
