2010 Nature Côtes du Rhône Rouge : Famille Perrin : France

Wine tasting notes brought to you by the Cellars Wine Club International Wine Club!

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. The 2010 Perrin Nature Côtes du Rhône is 95% Grenache and 5% Syrah organically grown grapes. Certified organic by Ecocert, Perrin Nature is not only an organic Côtes du Rhône but also a great wine. Using their experience in organic farming at Beaucastel (one of the first big estates to turn to organic farming 40 years ago), this wine is a beautiful expression of fruit with delicate and soft tannins. The wine pours a medium garnet color in the glass, with bright red reflections. The nose shows macerated cherries, spices, licorice and notes of Garrigue (thyme, rosemary, juniper). The mouth is full bodied, with lots of fruit and ends with a great freshness.

Serving and Pairing Notes for 2010 Nature Côtes du Rhône Rouge

The tannins are elegant and fleshy. The dark fruit flavors make the Perrin Nature the perfect Red wine for cool fall evenings and there is more than enough body to stand up to beef and pork dishes. Drink now through 2015.
