Famille Perrin

Les Sinards Châteauneuf-du-Pape Red Rhône Blend 2016

Jean-Pierre, François and Pierre Perrin craft wines, inspired by the memory of their grandfather, Pierre Perrin. Mostly Grenache, this is a classic Châteauneuf du Pape. Vivid red with dark fruit and spice aromas. On the palate blackberry and sweet cherry with notes of herb pepper with a leathery character. Soft tannins, good balance, lingering ending with fruit and spice, very nice! — 9 days ago

Réservé Châteauneuf-du-Pape Grenache Blend 2006

Give it a hard decent and let the funk blow off. Will rose about 30ish minutes. Then enjoy your hard earned money with a beautiful Grenache. Lovely. Hard to swallow the price but the chest puffing you get to do the next day is almost worth it. 🤣 — 18 days ago

Domaine Jean-Louis Chave

Mon Coeur Côtes du Rhône Red Rhone Blend 2016

Decanted 2 hours before we arrived at The Bird, this was the "arrival" wine to pair with hummus and olive oil. Acidity on this wine even after 2 hours was quite significant. But the hummus and olive oil and cheeses really paired quite well and allowed this wine to show a nice and slightly youthful dusty raspberry and a hint of mint. Olive and green pepper to the middle. The middle is darker, but still youthful and sweet. Finishes with a lot of restraint. 91 is a fair rating now, and I feel slight improvement is expected, but not much. Fair QPR here at 20 bucks retail. — 9 days ago

Another visit to the weekly Wednesday Wine Committee, and a wonderful hosting by Glenn. As always, all wines are tasted blind. 1 sparkler, 3 whites, 4 reds and 1 dessert.

Very similar to number 2 red. The age here balanced out the ripeness of the fruit from becoming too overpowering, but the secondary herbal notes of black pepper and baking spice weren’t overbearing either. I would say this seemed a touch more fruit forward than the wine prior. Little darker.

Cuvée Tradition Gigondas Grenache 2013

Definitely an old school producer. I had the 2014 recently—quite restrained.

Almost had this a couple nights ago; went with a Minervois instead because of food pairing considerations. Like the notes though...I’ll queue it up soon. Thanks!
