Tasting Notes:
Intense notes of violet, black fruit and spices, black pepper and liquorice. Rounded, full-bodied but very fine with elegant tannins and good freshness.
Drinking Dates:
2012 to 2017
Cépagement:
50% each Syrah and Grenache
Upbringing:
The entire harvest is destemmed. Syrah is vinified in wooden truncated tanks that are punched down and pumped over. The Grenache is vinified in stainless steel tanks. The Syrah is partly aged in one year old oak barrels. Blending takes place after malolactic fermentation and the wines age for a least 6 months before being released.
Critic Reviews:
"A blend of equal parts Grenache and Syrah, the 2009 Perrin Vinsobres Les Cornuds reveals abundant aromas of crushed rocks, spring flowers and blue as well as black fruits in its darker, more cool climate style. It is completely different from the Grenache-dominated wines from the warmer climates of Cairanne, Rasteau, Vacqueyras or Gigondas. The impressive, deep, rich Vinsobres Les Cornuds comes from high elevation (400 feet) vineyards, and should easily age for 10 years." 90-93/100 (Parker)

"Noticeably darker than the Côtes du Rhône-Villages and noticeably fresher on the nose. Syrah’s dark pepperiness more to the fore on the nose. Dark and withheld. Delicious combination of dense but bright fruit and lively acidity wth fine, dense tannins. Alcohol disappears in the energy of the fruit. Cool, fresh, savoury aftertaste leaving fine lingering tannins. Controlled ripeness." b>17/20 (Jancis Robinson MW)
