My friends, the Perrin brothers, are really turning things up in their native Southern Rhone Valley. They've always led the way in Chateauneuf du Pape – hundreds of you will attest to that – but lately they've turned their attention and Midas touch to Gigondas, the Northern Rhone, and now – Vinsobres. And just as with everything else these masters of their craft produce, this is – quite frankly – without compare. I've talked about this "in-between land" in the past; one of the eight southern "Crus" of the Rhone along with Chateauneuf and Gigondas. The appellation is situated roughly 25 miles to the north of Chateauneuf du Pape where the slightly more northern latitude greatly benefits the production of world-class Syrah. Rolling hillside parcels climb to nearly 1,500 feet elevation, into the Baronnies Hills at the foothills of the Alps. The best Perrin bargain yet!

A bright and fresh style, with a mix of raspberry, cherry and red currant coulis flavors, underscored by light bramble and mineral accents. Shows good juicy energy through the finish, revealing latent depth. Grenache and Syrah. Best from 2020 through 2025. 2,400 cases imported.

92 points, James Molesworth, Wine Spectator (Dec 2019)
