Rhône 2010 Berrys' Best Buys - Southern Belles
This is wonderful quality wine from the masters of the Southern Rhône wines, the Perrin family. This seems expensive for a “lowly” Vinsobres, but a whiff of the wine in the glass tells you it’s anything but. It is full, rich, spicy and delicious, so in fact, great value for money!
(Chris Pollington, BBR Fine Wine)
The name Vinsobres, with its oxymoronic meaning, is easy to remember, and so it should be, as its fruits are amongst the purest and most elegant in the whole valley. Recognising potential, the Perrins have invested heavily here and this wine is, as a result a worthy flag-bearer for the village.
Simon Field MW, BBR Buyer, February 2012
Few developments have been as telling or as significant as the progress made by the Perrins in the villages outside of their Châteauneuf-du-Pape fortress. Their aspiration has been clear and it has been honourable; through ownership, partnership and, where appropriate, acquisition, they wish to build a portfolio which shows the very best in the very best of the terroirs which these villages have to offer and thereby to promote both the Perrin philosophy, which is focused on quality and quality only, and in the process, to raise the profile of the region as a whole. The progress made to date has been most impressive! The artists formerly known as Perrin Père et Fils now prefer the title of La Famille Perrin...La Famille Perrin
