Tasting Note:
This 100% Grenache wine, already has a complex nose (black fruit, smoky and sweet spices) and a rich and powerful palate, with silky, delicate tannins. Still young but full of promises, this wine will complete its aging in wooden vats and barrels.

Wine Rating: 93-95/100

Description

Famille Perrin Official Website

This wine gets its exceptional aromas from vines spanning less than 1 hectare, with nearly 100 years in age. A small plot of less than 1 hectare of pre-Phyloxera vines (around 100 years old). The yields are very small and the production is limited to 1500 bottles a year.

Blend: Grenache and Syrah

Wine Critic:
What will compete with the top wines in the vintage, Perrin’s 2014 Gigondas l’Argnée Vieilles Vignes comes mostly from sandy soils and pre-phylloxera vines; the only downside is that’s there’s a scant 100 cases made. Offering thrilling notes of ground pepper, crushed flowers, violets and spice, with a core of kirsch and raspberry fruit, this beauty is medium to full-bodied, impeccably balanced and has building, yet ultra-fine tannin that emerge on the finish. It’s a vintage-defying effort that might be difficult to find, but will be well worth the effort! Jeb Dunnuck, Wine Advocate, 2016.
