Famille Perrin : Réserve 2012SKU :F492/12
Wine Advocate-Parker :
Looking at the reds and also a solid value that delivers ample fruit and texture, the 2012 Famille Perrin Cotes Du Rhone Reserve is a blend of Grenache, Syrah and Mourvedre, with the Grenache coming from plots close to the estate and the Syrah from a cooler terroir in Vinsobres. Really showing the Syrah component, with meaty black fruits, chalky minerality, tobacco and herbs, this medium-bodied, rich and textured 2012 has juicy acidity and solid purity of fruit. Drink it over the coming 2-3 years. Drink now-2017.
