Famille Perrin - Les Crus

Perrin & fils Vacqueyras


Famille 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

2009 is a great vintage of the Southern Rhône Valley. It’s a combination of ripe fruit, a rich and harmonious mouth and a fleshy finale with elegant tannins.
