Famille Perrin Côtes du Rhône Rouge Réserve 2017

The Famille Perrin Côtes du Rhône Rouge Réserve is a blend of Grenache (mainly from the Prébois vineyard in Orange), Syrah from further north (from their vineyard in Vinsobres) and Mourvèdre grapes. Pretty deep in colour the nose offers a beautiful aromatic complexity, marked by Grenache and a hint of blackcurrant brought by the ripe Syrah. On the palate, it shows complexity with tannins still present, but with finesse and elegance, and a beautiful freshness. This is "Côtes du Rhône par Excellence" and a great everyday wine.
