The Perrins manage all of the vineyards used to source this wine, which include Vinsobres for Syrah (20%), Orange (Prébois) for Grenache (60%) and Saint-Maurice for Mourvèdre (20%). Cherries and raspberries ride on a medium to full-bodied palate, backed by a plump mouthfeel and silky tannins on the finish. The Cotes du Rhone Reserve will be ready to drink on release, but it should hold up for at least 3-4 years after that.

Famille Perrin is a renowned producer of wines in the Rhône Valley, with a history dating back to the early 20th century. The Côtes du Rhône Reserve is a classic example of the region's winemaking traditions, with a blend of Grenache, Syrah, and Mourvèdre grapes that are carefully selected and hand-harvested.

The grapes are grown on the family's vineyards, which are located in the southern Rhône Valley, where the warm Mediterranean climate and stony soils provide ideal growing conditions. The grapes are fermented in stainless steel tanks, and then aged in oak barrels for up to 12 months, which adds complexity and depth to the wine.

The Côtes du Rhône Reserve is a rich and full-bodied wine, with aromas of dark fruit, spice, and herbs. On the palate, it is smooth and velvety, with flavors of blackberry, plum, and black pepper. The tannins are firm but well-integrated, giving the wine a long and satisfying finish.

This wine is perfect for pairing with hearty meat dishes, such as roast beef or lamb, as well as with strong cheeses like Roquefort or Gorgonzola. It is also a great wine to enjoy on its own, as a special treat at the end of a long day.

Overall, the Côtes du Rhône Reserve from Famille Perrin is a classic example of the region's winemaking traditions, and a testament to the family's commitment to producing high-quality wines that reflect the unique terroir of the Rhône Valley.

Wine has been produced in the Rhône Valley for over 500 years, with some of its vineyards being amongst the oldest in France. Syrah rules over the south with a mix of Mediterranean grapes, while in the north, the two stars are Hermitage – grown on an imposing granite hillside above the town of Tain and best put away in the back of the cellar for a decade – and Côte-Rôtie, a star appellation made famous by Guigal's single-vineyard wines, yet also home to dozens of fine producers as yet less well known. The sheer hillsides overlooking the river have to be terraced to make production possible.

St Joseph and Cornas also provide wines of weight and worth, but the best source for good value is Crozes-Hermitage, a satellite appellation which has come alive in the last few years with the arrival of young blood.

The river valley widens out south of Valence into Côtes du Rhône country on the windy alluvial plains and the lower slopes of the hills. It is a most imposing sight during the cold, clear, blue skies of Mistral conditions. The best of the wine villages of the Côtes du Rhône have been promoted to their own appellations - Vinsobres, Vacqueyras - close in quality to the better known Gigondas.

The king of the southern Rhône is Châteauneuf-du-Pape. Here the galets roulés, rounded rocks from the ancient river bed, provide the context for gloriously rich red wines that are redolent of the heat and herbs of the south, and enhanced by the complexity which comes from blending several grape varieties. Thirteen are permitted in all, but Grenache usually dominates, along with Syrah and Mourvèdre in support. A fine vintage needs eight to 10 years cellaring for best results.

If your taste runs to fuller, richer, relatively exotic white wines, then perhaps a white Hermitage or Châteauneuf-du-Pape from the Rhône Valley would suit better, or else a marvellously perfumed, heady Condrieu - headquarters of the Viognier grape.
