Famille Perrin Vacqueyras Les Christins 2013

Côtes du Rhône, Rhone Valley, FranceThere is a lot to like about this grenache/syrah blend (80/20) that comes off eight hectares of old vines (50 years) located on the Commune of Sarrians, south of the Dentelles de Montmirail. The fermentation is split between wood and tanks for one month. The colour is deep, and the nose an impressive mix of black pepper and liquorice. On the palate the wine lingers, spewing peppery, plummy, rich, black raspberry fruit to a spicy mineral finish, flecked with gamey, coriander notes. Fall venison, or barbecue beef are a fine match. This will improve in the cellar through 2022.Tasted: 21 July 2016Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices: BC 23.49 BCLS QC 24.95 SAQ ON 23.95 LCBO NF 30.00 NLLC Producer: Famille PerrinDistributors: Charton-Hobbs
