This juicy mouthful of red is the best under this label for years. Meaning 'the old farmhouse', this wine hails from the red Mediterranean soils and chalk debris of the slopes of Mount Ventoux near the town of Mazan in the south of the Rhône Valley. ​Often touted by international wine critics as one of the great wine values of the world, this blend of Grenache, Syrah, Cinsault and Carignan is warm and spicy with lashings of red fruits - raspberries and cherries - a touch of earth, and round, deliciously supple tannins. A friendly and fruity wine made to be enjoyed at anytime.​
Winery notes (2016 Vintage)
"The 2016 vintage in the Southern Rhone valley is exceptional, both in terms of quality and quantity, thanks to idyllic weather conditions that protected the region from climatic accidents throughout the whole year. The Perrin Family, also owners of the famous Château de Beaucastel, search for the most suitable terroirs to produce a fresh and fruity wine. Unpretentious, this is the archetypal pleasure wine. Authentic, genuine and tasty. The vineyards are located on the slopes of Mont Ventoux. The altitude offers freshness, which provides a good acidity level to the grapes. The wine is, therefore, fresh, fruity and well balanced.

Pretty red colour, with purple reflections. With lots of freshness, this 2016 vintage is the archetype of a wine that gives pleasure: authentic, sincere and tasty. It has notes of red and black fruit (blackberry, blackcurrant), rich and spicy. The mouth is fruity and full-bodied boosting the taste buds. Balanced, crisp, with silky tannins, the final has a beautiful aromatic persistence."
