Famille Perrin, Vinsobres AOC 'Les Hauts de Julien'Regular price €49.00
"Our selection parcellaire, ‘Les Hauts de Julien’ 2013, was harvested on 18 and 19 October with beautiful mature Grenache and Syrah. The end of the alcoholic fermentations is carried out in new oak casks. The nose is very complex, with notes of black fruit, cocoa, toast and spices. This wine is concentrated, dark, and has rich tannins with great length and a persistent finish.
The vintage started with a long winter and one of the driest ones in the past years followed by an inexistent Spring. The crop development was very slow due to important climatic variations. The winemakers’ work was therefore crucial to get good quality grapes in small quantities. 2013 was a complicated vintage, and late – but is wonderfully balanced and very promising."
92/100 Wine Advocate, Jeb Dunnuck - 01/10/2015 A big step up over the Les Cornuds, the 2013 Côtes du Rhône Villages Vinsobres les Hauts de Julien is a parcel selection of Syrah and Grenache from the cooler, windy Vinsobres region located in the northern part of the southern Rhône. Inky colored and mostly opaque, it reveals gorgeous, northern Rhône-like characteristics of black and blue fruits, pepper, violets and underbrush. Medium to full-bodied, elegant and seamless, with building tannin and a great finish, it can be enjoyed today, but will benefit from short term cellaring and have a decade or more of longevity.
