Grenache Syrah Mourvedre Cotes du Rhone France
The essential Cotes du Rhone cepage, crafted almost exclusively from the Grenache of Grand Prebois and Syrah of Vinsobres. The inclusion of Mourverdre completes the holy trinty while contributing savouryness and pastoral charm. Filled with the fragrant fruit of Vallee Rhone and Mistral spice of Provence, Perrin Reserve makes a match with continental style grills and crumbed veal, slow braised joints and ham.

Perrin Pere & Fils have been drawning fruit from the finest vineyards along Cotes du Rhone since 1909. To this day they retain the choicest parcels to vinify into exemplary regional wines. Parcels of Grenache, Mourvedre and Syrah are sourced from Perrin estate properties at Grand Prebois and Vinsobres, as well as fine vineyards leased under long term contract. Within and around Grand Prebois, the soils are limestone gravel clays. Vinsobres is rich in quartz and limestone marls. Following the harvest, bunches are destemmed, followed by temperature controlled vinification. Batches are treated to a year's maturation in a combination of unwooded vats and seasoned oak Foudres before egg white fining and bottling.
