Perrin Vacqueyras Les Christins 2017
Perrin 2011 Les Christins Vacqueyras, Rhone Valley | 100% Grenache | A stunning Vacqueyras from a stony, terraced 19 acre vineyard of clay and sandy soils in the commune of Sarrians south of the Dentelles de Montmirail –those toothy mountains that anchor the horizon and are home to these old Grenache vines averaging over 50 years old. A gifted parcel with engaging terroir driven results. A really giving Vacqueyras with an edgy pepper and plum, blackberry, a tremulous acidity and softer sided tannins, this is yet another example of how the Perrin family are some of the finest stewards of the Rhône.

Steaks, pasta with meat sauces, sausages the spicier the better. Barbecued ribs or chicken. Burgers and brats.
