As owners of Château de Beaucastel in Châteauneuf-du-Pape, and La Vieille Ferme in the Côtes du Ventoux and Luberon, the Perrin family has demonstrated exceptionally high standards for nearly a century. Famille Perrin Côtes du Rhône Réserve Rouge is made from estate vineyards in Grand Prebois and Vinsobres, as well as from vineyards that the family leases, and from purchased grapes from producers under long-term contracts. The vineyard of Prébois has clayey limestone soils covered with stones. In Vinsobres the terraces are rich in quartz and marl limestone. All of these plots are managed and supervised by the Beaucastel team. After the harvest is sorted and destemmed, vinification takes place in stainless steel and oak. Aging occurs in tanks and foudre 25% of the year. Made of 60% Grenache, 20% Syrah and 20% Mourvedre, this is the perfect 'everyday' drinking red to serve with Mediterranean, Italian and American cuisines.

A blend of 60% Grenache and the rest Syrah and Mourvèdre, the 2018 Côtes Du Rhône Reserve reveals a vivid purple color as well as impressive notes of black and blue fruits, ground pepper, and wild herbs. It's round, supple, and polished on the palate, with beautiful fruit. It's an impressive Côtes du Rhône. 88-90

The Perrins manage all of the vineyards used to source this wine, which include Vinsobres for Syrah (20%), Orange (Prébois) for Grenache (60%) and Saint-Maurice for Mourvèdre (20%). Cherries and raspberries ride on a medium to full-bodied palate, backed by a plump mouthfeel and silky tannins on the finish. The 2018 Cotes du Rhone Reserve will be ready to drink on release, but it should hold up for at least 3-4 years after that.
