Dark in colour, ranging from ruby-red to almost black. On the nose summer fruits, blackcurrant and blackberry Provençal spices (garrigue), pepper, a hint of vanilla with a touch of gaminess. All these aromas resurface on the palate in the company of some very subtle tannins. We are lucky to work with many top Domaines in Châteauneuf-du-Pape including this excellent wine from Domaine Perrin. Châteauneuf is a blend of up to 13 permitted grape varities with the majority of producers using Grenache and Syrah.
