2017 Famille Perrin Les Hauts de Julien (750ml)

Syrah from Vinsobres, Rhône, France


Like the les Cornuds bottling, the 2017 Vinsobres Les Hauts de Julien is a 50-50 blend of Grenache and Syrah. It's co-fermented, then divided into foudre and barrels for aging (half in each). With its toasted coconut and cocoa aromas, it comes across as a bit exotic, but it adds plenty of mixed berry fruit and hints of dried spices. There are only 5,000 bottles of this full-bodied, richly textured wine for the world, so fans will have to move fast to secure some once it's released.

94-96 points, Joe Czerwinski, Wine Advocate (Issue # 239 - Oct 2018)

Not yet bottled, the 2017 Vinsobres Les Hauts De Julien is stunning stuff that offers a Syrah-driven profile that boasts a saturated purple color, notes of black fruits, liquid violets, ground pepper, and grilled meat, full-bodied richness, a layered texture, and a great finish. Savvy readers will snatch this up and it will keep for at least 10-12 years.
