Perrin’s Vacqueyras is a beautiful example of Grenache based wines from the Southern Rhône Valley. An impressive aromatic expression, structured body and a great ageing potential.


Handpicked harvest in 25 kg boxes. Crushing, long fermentation (1 month) in tanks of 50 hectolitres and in Foudres (50%). Blending after malolactic fermentation.

The vintage

Great vintage,
The year is characterized by the contrast between a extremely hot July, and a very cool august. But also two beneficial rain in the middle of both month.
September was hot during the first half with two rains. They did not hurt the quality of the vintage. We were able to harvest late with the beautiful Indian summer which last until mid October
