Famille Perrin : Vinsobres Les Hauts de Julien "Vieilles Vignes" 2019
Rhone Valley -
Red Wine -
The Les Hauts de Julien "Vielles Vignes" 2019 vintage is the result of a blend of Grenachenoir and Syrah grapes.
In the Rhone Valley region, the Les Hauts Julien "Vieilles Vignes" 2019 vintage had the right weather conditions to produce an exceptional wine. Despite a very hot summer, the harvest took place without particular precocity as usual where the grapes arrived at full maturity.
Produced in the Vinsobres appellation, this wine is certainly one of the finest in the southern Rhône Valley.
Te robe: is illustrated by a beautiful concentrated and dark robe.
The nose: is complex with nice notes of black fruits (blackcurrant) as well as an empyreumatic side.
The palate: seduces by its finesse and its very fruity expression. In the middle of the mouth, the magnificent texture of this vintage is of a great purity. The tannins are of great richness and finely chiseled associated with aromas of red fruits and undergrowth. The finish is long, persistent and of great finesse.
The vineyard is located about 40 kilometers north of Châteauneuf-du-Pape at an altitude of about 300 meters with a cool climate suitable for Syrah. The parcels, Hauts Juliens, are made from very old vines and are mainly composed of Syrah and Grenache.
This estate belongs to the Famille Perrin who are among the most important owners of organic wine and have without doubt the best terroirs in the southern Rhone Valley. The values they advocate have long made their reputation throughout the world: respect for the environment, commitment to artisanal viticulture, but also by their conviction that only organic farming allows the taste of the terroir to be expressed.
The advice 12bouteilles: This magnificent vintage will go perfectly with a barbecue during a summer evening or with red meat (game, venison, roe deer). It can be enjoyed now or kept for more than 10 years thanks to its great ageing potential. We recommend to serve it at a temperature of 17°C for a better tasting.
