    FAMILLE PERRIN
Part of the excellent 'Perrin' Estate which is better known for making the top Beaucastel CNDP wines.
The fruit of the Les Chapouins comes from a small parcel of old vines situated on the edge of the Beaucastel estate and is vinified separately and matured, undisturbed, in a single 4500 litre foudre in the cellars at the Château.

No reviews as this wine is only made in very small quantities and only in top vintages.
Here is a brief summary that will show the potential to those of you who want
something special:
The wine is a vibrant ruby in the glass, with just a touch of garnet at the rim. Immediately expressive and expansive on the nose, there are notes of red and black fruits . The result is a ripe yet savoury bouquet that is incredibly enticing. Thanks to the extended ageing in foudre, the typically firm tannins of the 2010 vintage have mellowed and integrated wonderfully into the ripe core of fruit, allowing brambly sweetness to shine through the developed leather and lightly gamey, peppery notes. There is a myriad of flavours through the mid-palate and onto the finish, aided by the smooth texture and vibrant acidity. The finish is long, savoury, spicy, fruitful and somehow both youthful and mature

The full-bodied, dense 2017 Chateauneuf du Pape seems a bit closed at the moment, but Asian five spice powder still brings plenty of complexity and nuance to the rich, dark fruit aromas and flavours. Multidimensional, layered and long, this is another terrific vintage for Beaucastel's main cuvée.

RP/Joe Czerwinski -
Bottled in late July, the 2015 Chateauneuf du Pape is an amazing effort, especially when one considers the production volume. Loaded with black cherry fruit and cola-like spice, this full-bodied, richly textured wine never seems heavy or warm, while exotic Indian spice notes linger on the finish. It should drink well for at least 20 years.

Vinsobres V.V.
Les Hauts de Julien
Famille Perrin

RP/Joe Czerwinski -
The 2017 Vinsobres Les Hauts de Julien is a 50-50 blend of Grenache and Syrah. It's co-fermented, then divided into foudre and barrels for aging (half in each). With its toasted coconut and cocoa aromas, it comes across as a bit exotic, but it adds plenty of mixed berry fruit and hints of dried spices. There are only 5,000 bottles of this full-bodied, richly textured wine for the world, so fans will have to move fast to secure some once it's released.

A La Gloire de Mon Grand-Père
Bosquet des Papes

RP/Joe Czerwinski -
There are 10,000 bottles of the stunning 2016 Châteauneuf du Pape A la Gloire de Mon Grand-Père, which is good news for lovers of 100% Grenache. Drawn from a single parcel in the lieu-dit of Gardiole (mostly sandy soils), half of the fruit was destemmed. It's full-bodied and concentrated but silky and refined, with scintillating purity of cherry and raspberry fruit, backed by crisp acids and enlivening hints of orange zest on the long, reverberating finish. It's a terrific value that should drink well for more than a decade.

    DOMAINE du
VIEUX TELEGRAPH

RP -
The Brunier family continues to turn out a beautiful array of wines, ranging from its value-priced Le Pigoulet and new entry called Megaphone, to their top-of-the-line, world-class Vieux Telegraphe Chateauneuf du Pape.
This estate is somewhat unusual in that it has 135 acres of contiguous parcels in the famous La Crau sector of Chateauneuf du Pape.

Vieux Telegraph

RP -
Undoubtedly one of the top vintages of this wine, the 2016 Chateauneuf du Pape La Crau features classy notes of crushed stones and black tea to go along with ripe raspberries and black cherries. Full-bodied yet silky, there's more power and richness in La Crau than in Piedlong, yet there's commensurate elegance and finesse. The wine grows in intensity on the finish without ever seeming heavy or overripe, instead offering hints of tea and licorice.
