Domaine Roger Perrin Chateauneauf-du-Pape 2013

External Review by We Speak Wine:

Vineyards have existed on the Roger Perrin property between Orange and Chateauneuf de Pape since the beginning of the 1900's. However, estate bottling only began in 1969 when the Domaine was founded by Roger who took over after his father-in-law's retirement; in 1980, the estate began to sell its wine under its own name: Domaine Roger Perrin. In 1986 Roger died unexpectedly during the harvest, and his son Luc, a teenager who had studied enology and done an apprenticeship at Beaucastel, took over the domaine. Luc Perrin steadily increased the quality of the vineyards and of his wines and became widely recognized as a rising star in Chateauneuf du Pape. Sadly however, Luc lost a battle with cancer in August of 2010 and his legacy is now being carried on by his oldest sisiter Veronique. All of Luc's vineyard practices and vinification techniques are being continued. The Domaine's holdings include 40 hectares of vineyards in Chateauneuf de Pape, Cotes du Rhone and Vin de Pays de la Principaute d'Orange. Spread out over 72 individual parcels, each sub-plot has its own distinct "Mini Terroir". And while some of the vines are more than 100 years old, the average age of the vines is 60 years old; 85% of the vines are over 20 years of age. The Chateauneuf vines are planted on two types of soil. The first is a clay and limestone subsoil covered by the famous galets roules. The second type of soil contains much more sand and makes wines that show a little more aromatic and tannic finesse.

Vintage: 2011 02/25/2014

Vivid ruby. Fresh red and dark berries on the nose and in the mouth. Picks up smoky and floral nuances with air and shows good energy and a slightly tart edge. Finishes with good nerve, youthful firming tannins and a hint of bitter cherry pit. No excess fat here. The 2011 Chateauneuf du Pape (same blend and elevage as the 2012) is classic, up-front and charming 2011. Offering up loads of spice, dried herbs and sweet red fruits, this medium-bodied, focused and nicely balanced effort should be enjoyed over the coming 4-5 years. Drink now-2019.

Delicate coffee notes with Creme caramel on the mid palate. Structured without grainy tannins or excessive alcohol. Classy and sophisticated but still showing rusticity. A classic. - Decanter Magazine 95-100 Points Vivid ruby. Fresh red and dark berries on the nose and in the mouth. Picks up smoky and floral nuances with air and shows good energy and a slightly tart edge. Finishes with good nerve, youthful firming tannins and a hint of bitter cherry pit.
