Food Pairings for Perrin "La Vieille Ferme"
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"
Talk about "bang for your buck," this wine from the Côtes du Ventoux is an absolute steal. Ventoux, located in the Southern Rhône area, is dominated by the 6,500 foot tall Mount Ventoux. Most of the grapes are grown around this land mass, on the very high slopes of this massive mountain, giving them direct access to needed sunshine and perfect climate. Selected and assembled by the renowned Jean-Pierre Perrin, this blend of Grenache, Syrah, Cinsault and Mourvèdre is lightly fined and filtered, giving it a complex yet very approachable and pleasurable taste.
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.
The 2006 red wine, a blend of 50% Grenache with the rest Carignan and Syrah, the 2006 La Vieille Ferme Cotes du Ventoux exhibits nice grapy and berry fruit in an uncomplicated, medium-bodied style with some pepper, herb, and spice.
Tasty black cherry and tobacco flavors with a slightly firm structure. Rock solid value. Grenache, Syrah, Carignane and Cinsault. Drink now.
Juicy, with a range of dark cherry and currant fruit layered with briar and tar notes on the medium-weight finish. Drink now.
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.
Friendly cherry, damson plum and herb notes are lined with a hint of lavender, followed by a lightly dusty finish. Drink now.
Winemaker's notes:This blend of Grenache Syrah Carignan and Cinsault grapes has produced a typical Rh��ne Valley style; full of fruit and spice aromas it has soft tannins and good body.
