A flawless example of white Châteauneuf du Pape from Famille Perrin. Sourced from a single parcel of Roussanne vines planted in 1909. Off the charts in terms of quality and certainly one of the most outstanding wines produced in the world today. Rich, decadent, voluptuous mouthfeel – the texture is extraordinary.  Buttered citrus, quince and marmalade all supported with plenty of acidity and liquid minerals.

Region

The Rhône is a wine region in southern France situated in the Rhône River valley and is generally divided into two sections – the Northern Rhône and the Southern Rhône. The Northern Rhône is famous for its red wines made from the Syrah grape occasionally blended with a little Viognier and white wines made from blends of Marsanne and Roussanne as well as varietal Viognier wines. The most famous of these wines are the Syrah’s from Hermitage, Crozes Hermitage, Cote Rotie and Cornas and white wines from Condrieu, Chateau Grillet and Hermitage. In the Southern Rhône wines are generally produced from blends of grapes – the more well-known areas of production being Chateaueneuf du Pape and the more reasonable prices wines from the Côtes du Rhone. Here red wines are made from blends of several varietals, more often than not these include Grenache Noir, Mourvedre and Syrah (known as the GSM blend). We can highly recommend the Crozes Hermitage from Georges Reynaud which also received a gold medal from Decanter.
