Famille Perrin Chateauneuf-du-Pape Les Sinards 2021


Le Famille Perrin makes two Châteauneuf du Pape blends each year. My guess is that you’ve heard of one of them but not the other. The first is Chateau de Beaucastel. A blend of all the oldest vines on the property, it’s arguably one of France’s most recognizable names – a Cuvee that has turned the Perrin family into a household name. But their other CDP is the ‘Les Sinards’ , a total knockout nearly every vintage in its own regard with the only sin to its name being they didn’t put ‘Beaucastel’ on the label.

This is made almost entirely from younger Beaucastel vines with a smattering of fruit from a neighboring vineyard that the Perrin Family also farms. That little bit of fruit is the only thing keeping it from matching its older brothers’ moniker, but the quality is still exceptional. It’s a Grenache dominant blend that in 2021, much like its big brother, got a noticeable bump in Mourvedre to help make this a classically styled CDP.

94 Points, James Suckling
Scented nose with dark cherries, blueberries, dried thyme, plums, bark, roasted meat and baking spices following through to a medium to full body with finely grained tannins. Elegant and textural with a velvety core of juicy and crunchy berries on the mid-palate mingling with herbs and spices in harmony. Well-composed with a precise long finish.

92 Points, Wine Spectator
A seductive, overt style, with ripe cherry and sappy red licorice at the forefront, backed by smoked apple wood and iron shavings. Supple on the palate, with cashmere tannins providing nice structure through the smoky, silky finish. Grenache, Syrah and Mourvèdre. Drink now through 2032.
