Famille Perrin Vinsobres - Les Cornuds 2013


We really like the terroir of Vinsobres, a beautiful village located near Vaison la Romaine; The vineyard is at an altitude of 300m and is situated for the most part on terraces. Vinsobres is particularly suitable for Syrah because it preserves the finesse which is often lost in more southern climates. It develops notes of violet, smoked meat and blackberries. Grenache is also suited to this terroir, full bodied and not heavy, with notes of black chocolate, cherry and typical Garrigue aromas.


The entire harvest is destemmed. Syrah is vinified in wooden truncated tanks that are punched down and pumped over. The Grenache is vinified in stainless steel tanks. The Syrah is partly aged in one year old oak barrels. Blending takes place after malolactic fermentation.

The vintage

The vintage started with a long winter and one of the driest ones in the past years followed by an inexistent Spring. The crop development was very slow due to important climatic variations. The winemakers’ work was therefore crucial to get good quality grapes in small quantities. 2013 was a complicated vintage and late but is wonderfully balanced and is very promising.

It is not necessary to decant this wine. Serve at 18C


A terroir with altitude, this vintage of Vinsobres particularly expresses a lot of minerality. This beautiful wine predominantly made from Syrah shows a lot of freshness and notes of crunchy black fruit with a lot of peppery spices. The mouth is full-­‐bodied and has a refined and elegant tannic structure. The finish is mineral, and brings length and persistence to this vintage.
