Winemaker's Notes:

Jean Pierre and Francois Perrin have taken particular care that this Cotes du Rhoen meets their stringent standards of excellence. As proprietors of Chateau de Beaucastel in Chateauneuf-du-Pape, the Perrin family has demonstrated exceptionally high standards for nearly a century.

From the relatively cool districts around Cairanne and Jonquieres, the Blanc is an exotic blend of melon, honeysuckle, lemon aromas and flavors. Its freshness and intensity are the result of cold fermentation of the hand-picked grapes, 50% White Grenache, 20% Bourboulenc, and 10% Marsanne, Roussane, and Viognier.

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
