Editorial Reviews for Famille Perrin Vinsobres les Cornuds
Gamy pomegranate fruit hits the nose followed by notes of juniper, violet, and a whisper of coffee bean. This is rich and soft in the mouth, downright supple with a fine tension of sweet dark slightly stewy fruits and chalky, savory tannins. This lacks some acidity but does delivery good, rich woodsy, huckleberry and black berry flavors right through the mineral laced and slightly meaty, umami toned finish. This has a lot to offer, though it is a bit ponderous. 84pts
A splendid little wine by Perrin et fils, this regular Southern Rhone offering is redolent of wild blueberry and bilberry with soft tannin and blended red fruit mid-palate - perfect for current consumption from a highly touted vintage (which, in this instance, actually draws a bull's eye). Smooth, slightly sweet, creamy style is perfect at this price point. An excellent Grenache-based wine and highly recommended to the budget-minded.
Resinous and brambly with some damp earth. Bright cherry fruit with a perfect amount of syrah spice. Lovely.
Cherry and black pepper.
Very nice and drinkable.
Lovely deep red with blackish hints of colour. Fragrant with dark cherries, spices, herbs and a wonderful soft yet earthy character. Good tannins but not aggressive, gentle touch of wood. The wine fills the mouth with flavour and leaves the palate with satisfying crispness and rich flavour.

The 2000 Côtes du Rhône Reserve possesses straightforward, sweet black cherry fruit, medium body, and a pleasant, easygoing personality. This negociant is becoming a terrific source for value-priced southern Rhône wines that are faithful to their appellations of origin.
The fleshy 1999 is an excellent, dense ruby-colored effort displaying copious quantities of cherries, earth, and pepper in its medium to full-bodied personality. It is a fruit bomb to enjoy over the next 3-4 years.
The 2001 Cotes du Rhone Reserve is a blend of 50% Grenache and equal parts Syrah and Mourvedre, all tank-fermented and aged. This medium-bodied, 50,000-case cuvee is loaded with strawberry and cherry fruit, pepper, and spice as well as good underlying acidity. Drink it over the next 2-3 years.
This light, fun wine starts off with aromas of bright, bouncy cherries and peaches. Then it continues that theme in the mouth, with crunchy fresh fruit flavors of stone fruit, picking up some spice and mineral nuances on the finish. Drink now-2008.
A real sleeper of the vintage is the 2006 Perrin et Fils Reserve Cotes du Rhone, which comes from their vineyards in Grand Pre and Vinsobres. A blend of 50% Grenache, 30% Syrah, and the rest Mourvedre, the wine displays excellent black cherry fruit intermixed with some truffle, roasted herb, licorice, and spice. It has excellent freshness, an invigorating, rich mid-palate, and good acidity and spice in the finish. Drink it over the next 5-7 years.
Bursting with cherry and strawberry aromas, this Rhône red packs a peppery punch. Subtly integrated fruit embraces an underlying earthiness that rounds out the finish beautifully.
A round, easy style, with a dusting of grilled herb over the open-knit red and black cherry fruit. Thereandrsquo;s a stony hint on the finish, which fills out nicely in the glass. Grenache, Syrah and Mourvandegrave;dre. Drink now.
