Perrin, Gigondas, Clos du Tourelles

2021

Tasting Notes


ABV:
13 %

Notes

The Clos du Tourelles is a plot in the lower slopes around Gigondas, apparently the last remaining “Clos” of the village. Mainly Grenache with a bit Syrah and Mourvèdre, the 2021 is one of our favourite vintages here. Lifted on the nose and pretty open on the palate with all the requisite Mediterranean depth and intensity to support really good development. It spends 15-18 months in old foudré and is the only wine that sees a little whole bunch in the vinification. From a ten-hectare Clos of old-vine Grenache planted on sand and limestone soils. A blend of 85% Grenache, 10% Syrah and 5% Mourvèdre.

Perrin

Perrin

Beaucastel is situated on the east side of Châteauneuf near Courthézon. The Domaine is owned by François and Jean-Pierre Perrin and consists of 70 hectares made up of 30% Grenache, Syrah and Mourvèdre, with the rest being planted with the appellation’s ten other permitted grape varieties. In every way it sets itself apart from its local rivals; from an unusually low proportion of Grenache for today’s average Châteauneuf-du-Pape producer, to the unique thermo-vinification process involving a short intense burst of heat during fermentation in order to aid extraction of colour and flavour from the grapes while killing harmful bacteria. These elements, and the Perrin’s unwaivering determination for perfection, result in one of the Rhône’s most complex and long lived wines.
