Nicolas Perrin, Saint-Joseph
Deep ruby in colour. An intense bouquet, rich with notes of wild fruit. The palate is complex, with soft tannins. This powerful wine has a distinct elegance to it.
The soil in Saint Joseph is mainly composed of granite. The vineyard spreads out 40km along the right bank of the Rhône river. The aim of the winemakers was to make a balanced wine using grapes from two different locations: from the north of the appellation, which bring minerality and fruit, and from the historical centre of Saint Joseph that give more flesh to the wine. The blending makes wines with great distinction and extremely balanced.
Maison Nicolas Perrin brings together the scions of two of the great families... of the Rhône, Nicolas Jaboulet, formerly of the eponymous winery in Tain, and the Perrin family of Château de Beaucastel. This joint venture micro-négociant was created in 2009 with the sole aim of producing top quality Northern Rhône wines. Nicolas is able to source the best fruit and wines from growers and producers that he has formed a long standing relationship with, while the Perrin family bring expertise in winemaking and blending, as well as the use of their cellars. The partnership stems from a long standing friendship, a shared love of gastronomy and a philosophy to create wines that represent the best of their appellation.
