Famille Perrin 'Nature'

Southern Rhône, southern rhone France

The Famille Perrin wines are classic examples of the villages of the Southern Rhône and the consistent winemaking of the Perrin family. The combination of vibrant fruit and a strong expression of sense of place underlines the value these wines offer.

To achieve optimal freshness, the Perrin family source the grapes for the Luberon Rosé and the Luberon Blanc from growers with whom they work closely within the Parc Régional de Luberon in the south-east of the Rhône Valley. The combination of a cooler climate, an altitude of 300 metres and the limestone marl soil gives the wines a lively acidity. A blend of Cinsault, Grenache and Syrah, the Luberon Rosé offers a subtle floral and red-fruit character. The Luberon Blanc is a blend of Bourboulenc, Grenache Blanc, Ugni Blanc and Roussanne and has vibrant citrus notes complemented by a mineral finish. The Ventoux Rouge comes from the slopes of Mount Ventoux, where altitude again provides key freshness to this blend of Carignan, Cinsault, Grenache and Syrah. The finished wine is fragrant with juicy red fruit, balanced by soft, ripe tannins.

The Perrin family manage the vineyards for both of their Côtes-du-Rhône wines. The Côtes-du-Rhône Blanc is sourced from the clay-limestone soils of Cairanne and Jonquières, which provide the wine with a mineral freshness. It is a blend of Grenache Blanc, Marsanne, Roussanne and Viognier, vinified in stainless steel. The red is a blend of 60% Grenache, and 20% Syrah from the cooler climate of Vinsobres supplemented by 20% Mourvèdre from Côtes-du-Rhône Villages Saint-Maurice. Characterised by notes of redcurrant fruit and black pepper, the wine is aged in both stainless steel and oak barrels for 12 months to lend it extra weight.

Only 20% of the Côtes-du-Rhône region is permitted to add the word ‘Villages’, which signifies the best vineyard sites within the region. This Côtes-du-Rhône Villages is made using the same viticultural and vinification techniques employed at Château de Beaucastel. Made from Grenache and Syrah from vines grown on stony terraces over clay and limestone, it is a poised wine which typifies the very best of this region. Maturation is equally split between stainless steel, oak foudres and oak barrels for 12 months. This wine delivers excellent value and is characterised by notes of pure redcurrant fruit and Provençal herbs balanced by ripe and sleek tannins.

Famille Perrin ‘Nature’

The Perrin family started farming organically in 1950 at Château de Beaucastel with the strong belief that it helps to express the sense of place in the finished wine. It is therefore of little surprise that their philosophy has led to the creation of an organic range of wines sourced from the family’s certified vineyards across the Côtes-du-Rhône region. The Côtes-du-Rhône Rosé Nature, made from a blend of Grenache Noir, Syrah and Cinsault, is delicate and fragrant with pure red fruit. It is sourced from the 10-hectare ‘Grand Prébois’ vineyard in Orange. The Côtes-du-Rhône Blanc Nature comes from further north, close to the village of Vinsobres, where the soil is a mix of gravel and clay. The blend of Grenache Blanc, Viognier, Roussanne and Marsanne offers an appealing bright stone fruit character and white pepper spice. Both wines are aged in stainless steel to preserve the freshness and aromatic qualities of these grape varieties. The Côtes-du-Rhône Rouge Nature is a blend of Grenache and Syrah sourced from vineyards north of Orange, where the chalk and clay soil lends depth and purity of fruit to the wine. It is aged for 12 months, mainly in stainless steel with 25% of the blend aged in used oak barrels.
