Perrin "La Vieille Ferme" 2009
My Rating 83. This wine is a simple wine in the tradition of the southern Rhone Region. A blend of four different wines. The nose is medium berry very long. The taste is light with neither an objectional taste nor a interesting flavour. This is good for a garden party on a hot afternoon. Don't invite a wine lover he midgt not like it. At $ 11 for a 1,5 L Bottle it's fine, at least for the before mentioned occassion.
External Reviews for Perrin "La Vieille Ferme"
Friendly cherry, damson plum and herb notes are lined with a hint of lavender, followed by a lightly dusty finish. Drink now.
The owners of Château de Beaucastel, the famous Châteauneuf-du-Pape, created this brand 20 years ago as a Côtes-du-Rhône that sold for $1.99 and promptly became our house red. It was so successful that the source appellation was moved over to the nearby Côtes du Ventoux in order to fill the demand. Spicy, chewy, ripe and ready, with excellent structure.
Juicy, with a range of dark cherry and currant fruit layered with briar and tar notes on the medium-weight finish. Drink now.
The warmth of Southern France comes through in the blackberry jam flavors of this spicy, traditional blend of grenache, syrah, carignan and cinsault, a match for lamb stewed with olives.
Fresh and stylish, with black cherry, grilled herb and tobacco notes that linger on the tender, mineral-tinged finish. Drink now.
The 2004 La Vieille Ferme Cotes du Ventoux, which has mostly Grenache with a bit of Syrah and no doubt some Carignan, etc., and Mourvedre, shows good freshness, straightforward berry fruit, medium body, and good purity and intensity. It is a surprisingly good effort with more substance than I would have guessed. Drink it over the next two years.
I could make a lot of blue jokes about the orange sheep on the label, but since this catalog doesn't come equipped with a V-chip, I'll keep it clean. Don't be sheepish about serving this wine at your next dinner party - your guests will not become wild or woolly. Actually, you and your guests will find it sheer enjoyment. This Rhône Valley blend of Grenache, Syrah, Cinsault and Mourvèdre serves up rich gobs of blackberry and blueberry flavors with barely perceptible tannins and a finish full of spice.
