A great example of an early drinking Chateauneuf. This Grenache driven CDP delivers on flavor yet does it without too much oak, weight or density. The fruit sings and the hot earth minerality pins it all together.
70% Grenache / 15% Syrah / 10% Mourvedre / 5% (Cinsault, Clairette, Counoise, Vaccarèse)
Vineyards have existed on the Roger Perrin property between Orange and Chateauneuf du Pape since the early 1900's. However, estate bottling only began in 1969 when the Domaine was founded by Roger who took over after his father-in-law's retirement. In 1980, the estate began to sell wine under its own name: Domaine Roger Perrin.
