Apple, a little apple butter and bitter almond notes greet the nose with a vaguely cinnamon/allspice top note. This is quite fruity in the mouth and perhaps a touch sweet. Very smooth and soft, this is an easy wine to drink and its ripe apple, pear and fennel flavors are attractive and well balanced. Bright and juicy, this gains good focus on the moderately long finish. A bit simple and easy but attractive. 87pts

Another gem from Perrin et fils. This one is from the vaunted 2010 vintage (S. Rhone) and does not disappoint with a bouquet of cherry pie and Creamsicle. The Grenache dominance makes for more sweet cherry on the palate with little tannin or acidity in evidence. This is an excellent, well-priced product that would please any taste bud. The only detraction: a little thin in terms of finish and structure. Try the village wines for an improvement in this latter characteristic. Drink now or over the next year or two. 89-90 points.

Peaches and honey intermix here though the palate is dry and zingy acidity rings through on the finish. Good balance and structure.

The Perrin et Fils Cotes Du Rhone Villages is a 60/40 blend of Grenache and Syrah in the 2010 vintage. Very serious for the price, the wine shows impeccable balance between fruit character, mineral components, and lush mouth-feel.

A beautiful deep red hue that seems almost opaque. The nose shows caramel and spices that mingle with red berry fruit. The palate is full and deep, with fine tannins and good length.

Lush and inviting, with smoldering black tea weaving through the fleshy layers of melted fig, hoisin sauce, plum preserves and blackberry pudding. The dark ganache-coated finish has serious grip. Best from 2014 through 2025. Tasted twice, with consistent notes.

Bright ruby. Highly perfumed aromas of raspberry, cherry and dried flowers. Juicy and open-knit, offering lush red and dark berry compote flavors that pick up spiciness with air. Closes with very good energy and lift, with supple tannins lending shape and grip.

Another top value is the 2010 Cotes du Rhone Reserve red, a blend of 50% Grenache from their vineyards at Grand Prebois (adjacent to the Beaucastel estate), 20% Syrah from further north in Vinsobres, and the balance Carignan, Cinsault and other permitted grapes. The wine offers abundant amounts of red and black fruits intermixed with hints of tobacco leaf, earthy soil, pepper and spice. This supple-textured, delicious red is exactly what one expects of a very good Cotes du Rhone.

Deep ruby. Cherry and dark berries on the pungent nose. Offers gently sweet blackberry and cherry flavors and picks up slight bitterness with air. Finishes on a smoky note, with good energy and a touch of bitter cherry.

Winemaker's Notes:

This is an unbeatable price for a Cote du Rhone Village red, which are higher in quality than just "Cote du Rhone" since "Villages" indicates that the grapes specifically come from better village plots. "Potentially *outstanding*, coming primarily from Grand Prebois as well as other vineyards in St.-Gervais. A blend of 60% Grenache and 40% Syrah, it exhibits a dense ruby/purple hue along with deep blackberry and black cherry fruit intertwined with notions of licorice and underbrush. Medium to full-bodied with good acidity, freshness and precision."Edited from Robert Parker's Wine Advocate Brothers Jean-Pierre and Francois Perrin as well as their four sons, Thomas, Marc, Pierre and Mathieu, have quickly become the dominate wine producers of the entire southern Rhone Valley.
