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
Had this tasty blend at Stem Wine Bar. Solid red blend. Dark ruby-purple color that introduces aromas of black currants, black cherries, red licorice and smoky roasted herbs. — 17 days ago
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
So smooth and soft for such a young wine. Served with roast chicken and great company. — 15 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. — 18 days ago
