Winemaker's Notes:

The Vacqueyras les Christins comes from 20 acres that are leased by the Perrin family and managed by the Beaucastel team. The vineyards are within the commune of Sarrians, south of the Dentelles de Montmirail, between Carpentras and Vaison-la-Romaine, and the vines have an average age of 50 years. Clearly a wine from a warm place, with an amber hue and a rich texture, the nose is of morello cherries, flowers and licorice. On the palate it shows an unctuous texture and is rich and concentrated.

About Famille Perrin:

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
