Perrin are undeniably one of the Southern Rhône's finest producers, and this seductively smooth blend of grenache and syrah is an absolute treat for any fan of generous, approachable European reds. With lush aromas of red fruits and spice, and plenty of velvety tannins, this delightful drop can be enjoyed by itself or will pair excellently with a wide range of foods.
The Wine Review Online writes "The “Nature” line of wines—both white and red, made from organic grapes—from the Perrin family have been remarkably impressive since their debut. The supply is (or was, anyway) relatively limited, so I haven’t been able to work with them in my restaurant consulting capacity, but they offer phenomenal quality and value for retail buyers. This 2019 red bears no visual resemblance to a Côtes du Rhône, looking far more like a Gigondas from a top vintage like 2010, and that is high praise indeed. In terms of sheer density and depth of flavor, appearances do not deceive…this thing packs real punch, though just as impressively, it shows no roughness from overly aggressive maceration, and the grape tannins are very fine with no evident wood tannins at all. To be sure, this is all about primary fruit that is still undomesticated by time in bottle, but if you want a wine that offers big-time fruit and does so flawlessly, this is the ticket. It offers the concentration and flavor impact of Zinfandel or Malbec with the textural polish of New World Pinot, which makes me wonder…can I buy stock in this?"
The winery writes "Beautiful garnet-red colour with shiny reflections. The spicy nose is particularly seductive with notes of very ripe red fruit, mixed cherry and “Garrigue”. Elegant and well balanced, the mouth is full-bodied and greedy with aromas of red fruit and spices and a beautiful smoothness."
