Winemaker's Notes:

Made from 80% Grenache and 20% Syrah, the Perrin Vacqueyras is from vineyards neighboring those of Beaumes de Venise and Cotes du Ventoux, where the soil is stony clay. Matured in vat, cask and barrl, the wine is rich and ripe, full of aromas evocative of leather and amber. On the palate, it has soft silky tannins and great concentration.

"Rich, ripe and ultrasilky, with fat tannins that give this full-bodied wine a creamy and velvety texture. Dark fruit blends with charcoal, grilled meat, licorice and espresso notes on the lovely finish. From the brothers who make Château Beaucastel. Drink now through 2007."

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
