Famille Perrin ‘Les Crus’

Southern Rhône, southern rhone France

Famille Perrin is one of the most recognisable names in the Southern Rhône. The fifth and sixth generations of the family now manage the extensive vineyard holdings and grower partnerships which stretch across the region, from Vinsobres to the Ventoux.

The family have long been pioneers in the Southern Rhône Valley for their approach to organic farming, which they first adopted back in 1950 and for their unwavering commitment to creating wines that express the essence of their origin at each quality level. Their intimate knowledge of the complexities of the region’s climates and soils has led to their belief that the wines are greater when made with a blend of Southern Rhône grape varieties rather than a single variety. This philosophy is put into practice at every level, from Famille Perrin Luberon Rosé to Château de Beaucastel, where all 13 permitted varieties are grown.

‘Les Crus’

These wines highlight the diversity of certain Southern Rhône Crus, chosen for their distinctive soils and characters. The Vacqueyras ‘Les Christins’ is sourced from eight hectares of old vines, with an average age of 50 years, managed by the Château de Beaucastel team. The vines are situated to the south of the Dentelles de Montmirail where the soil is rich in clay and sand with stony terraces. This mix lends this Grenache-dominant wine a powerful intensity lifted by a supple, expressive red fruit character. It is predominantly aged in oak foudres with 20% aged in used oak barrels. The Châteauneuf-du-Pape ‘Les Sinards’ Blanc is a blend of Clairette, Grenache Blanc and Roussanne. Made in tiny quantities, it is sourced from a 2.5-hectare plot, ‘Clos du Château’, located near to Beaucastel, and managed by the same team. The Châteauneuf-du-Pape ‘Les Sinards’ Rouge is a blend of Grenache, Mourvèdre and Syrah sourced from a neighbouring plot, and from some of the young vines, under 15 years old, at Beaucastel.
