Only 20% of the Côtes-du-Rhône region is permitted to add the word ‘Villages’, which signifies the best vineyard sites within the region. This Côtes-du-Rhône Villages is made using the same viticultural and vinification techniques employed at Château de Beaucastel. Made from Grenache and Syrah from vines grown on stony terraces over clay and limestone, it is a poised wine which typifies the very best of this region. Maturation is equally split between stainless steel, oak foudres and oak barrels for 12 months. This wine delivers excellent value and is characterised by notes of pure redcurrant fruit and Provençal herbs balanced by ripe and sleek tannins.
The Perrin family started farming organically in 1950 at Château de Beaucastel with the strong belief that it helps to express the sense of place in the finished wine. It is therefore of little surprise that their philosophy has led to the creation of an organic range of wines sourced from the family’s certified vineyards across the Côtes-du-Rhône region. The Côtes-du-Rhône Rouge Nature is a blend of Grenache and Syrah sourced from vineyards north of Orange, where the chalk and clay soil lends depth and purity of fruit to the wine. It is aged for 12 months, mainly in stainless steel with 25% of the blend aged in used oak barrels.
