Famille Perrin Châteauneuf du Pape Blanc Les Sinards - 2023


This rare, limited quantity wine is made from parcels managed by the Château de Beaucastel team. It is characterized by its elegance, its freshness, and its immediate accessibility.


From the month of August onwards we carry out maturity checks and taste the berries regularly to determine the optimum harvest date. The grapes are immediately pressed on their arrival in the cellar in a pneumatic press. The must is then chilled and cold settled, with no intrants used. Each grape variety is vinified separately. Fermentation begins in the vat, and straight away the must is transferred into demi-muid barrels with regular stirring to add smoothness and structure. This is an essential process to preserve the texture and add richness and complexity to the wine, notably for the Clairette which is a fairly delicate grape. After several months in barrel the wine is lightly fined before being bottled. Our objective in making this wine is to seek out maximum freshness and finesse.

The vintage

The 2023 vintage is characterised by a beautiful climatic balance, which is reflected in the cellar. The mild winter was followed by a dry spring then a hot summer, particularly in August and September. Despite a slight lack of rain, these conditions allowed ideal ripening and the harvest began on August 22nd in perfect conditions. Under a warm and radiant sun, the harvest went perfectly, even if it was necessary to work quickly to prevent the juices from oxidizing in the heat, particularly the rosés. The harvest ended on October 4, with the last devatting on October 23. The first tastings reveal very balanced wines: they are rich, powerful and have good concentration, while having retained a beautiful freshness. A vintage that shows great potential.

Serve chilled at 10°C in tasting glasses.
Pairings: Guinea fowl with morel mushrooms and Epoisse cheese, grilled turbot with almonds.


Elegant golden colour with shiny reflections. Subtle and delicate, the nose reveals a seductive aromatic bouquet with notes of juicy pears and quince highlighted by a touch of honey which brings tastiness. Full of roundness, both opulent and well balanced, the palate offers superb aromas of juicy fruit which extend into a long finish supported by a delicate bitterness. An elegant wine, of great finesse.
