Two High Scoring Rhônes From Just £140

We are delighted to offer two wines that have just arrived in our warehouse. Both are from the Perrin family of Beaucastel fame, both are from the much lauded 2016 vintage and both have very impressive scores and tasting notes.

The 2016 Coudoulet Rouge is officially a Côtes du Rhône according to the classification but is described by the Perrin family themselves as 'baby Beaucastel' thanks, in part, to very similar soils and character. At £140 per 12 bottles in bond, it is also a very affordable everyday drinker that is an excellent example of how great winemakers can make brilliant entry level wines. This will drink very well now.

The Perrin's 2016 Vinsobres Les Hauts de Julien Vieilles Vignes is a bit of a mouthful in more ways than one! Made from 90 year old vines that are planted at an altitude of 300m, this is a fresh style of Syrah and Grenache that has a complexity and gravitas that belies its modest price point of £195 per 12 bottles. We'd suggest laying this wine down for another year or so.

“The 2016 Côtes du Rhône Coudoulet de Beaucastel sports a deep ruby/purple color as well as terrific freshness in its blueberry, violets, raspberry, and spring flower aromas and flavors. Showing the vintages purity and elegance, it still packs ample oomph and richness. Drink it over the coming decade."

“This has really vibrant blackberry and blackcurrant aromas with sage and thyme beneath, very fresh and well-defined. The full-bodied wine has concentrated fruits, with clear oak influence that's well integrated and adds spice and complexity of aroma and texture. It has good tannic grip, fine acidity and plenty of fruit for a punchy but well-balanced wine that's a bit of a beast. Drink 2019-2026."
