Perrin & Fils Vacqueyras 2005
Tasting Notes :The 2005 Perrin et Fils Chateauneuf du Pape Les Sinards exhibits greater ripeness than the 2006 but a longer and more complete mouthfeel, with medium to full body, and terrific concentration and richness for what is essentially a declassified, young vine Beaucastel cuvee blended with another parcel. This wine should drink well young but last for 15 or more years.
Round, strawberry, flinty. Tannic, medium acid. Medium body.
I agree that this is a luscious, plummy wine with red currant flavors, though not especially complex. It is smooth and graceful with subtle tannins and a medium-light to medium body. I think $40 is too high. $27-30 would be a lot more like it.
Well balanced, soft tannins, Plum and red currant with underlying hint of licorice, not as complex as I anticipated. Mineral lingering finish. Light to medium body. Reminds me of a Pinot Noir. Not worth $40 IMO.
External Reviews for Perrin & Fils Vacqueyras
Lovely kirsch and plum cake aromas and flavors lead the way, with a silky palate of currant and mineral that glides through the long finish. Not as densely structured as the top 2005s, but pure and wonderfully balanced. Drink now through 2020. 8,330 ... Wine Spectator.
