Winemaker's Notes:

Nearly black with purple undertones. Spectacular, very complex, intense and deep on notes of gentian, licorice, cyprus trees and pink pepper. Powerful and very structured with dense tannins.

The ideal match for this wine is a leg of venison with Gentian, sauteed potatoes with onions and garlic.

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
