Critic Review

Deep ruby but not as saturated as the Vinsobres. Attractive notes of black cherry, liquorice, balsamic, pine and black pepper spice. Subtle oak. An intense and tightly wound palate displays hedgerow fruits, slightly bitter chocolate tannin and chalky minerality. Then it unwinds to express more jammy fruit, fruitcake spices, dried fruits, and a charming acidity to a long finish. Very supple. An earlier drinking style, but still with the potential to age gracefully.

The Dentelles de Montmirail (from the Latin mons mirabilis, ‘extraordinary mountain’) is a small, jagged mountain chain that forms a natural amphitheatre around the sandstone village of Gigondas and its surrounding vineyards. Roman legionaries chose this beautiful, protected site to plant their grapevines. Located mid-slope at 300-400 metres above sea level, the Famille Perrin vineyard is amongst the most historical vineyards in Gigondas. It benefits from a flow of cold air which blows through the valley situated to the west of the village. The vines grow on limestone, calcareous marl and sandy soils, giving the Grenache immense finesse and elegance with unique aromas. Some old plots of Grenache planted on sand have pre-phylloxera vines.
