Perrin Cotes Du Rhone Blanc Reserve 2013, a blend of Grenache Blanc, Marsanne, Roussanne and Viognier grapes. Pair with pasta, scallops and seafood in a cream sauce.
Characteristic of Viognier and its floral notes, this is a wine with an incredible freshness and great depth. It will be a wonderful match for Mediterranean dishes and fish.
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.
