Famille Perrin Châteauneuf-du-Pape Les Sinards 2013
Famille Perrin / Perrin & Fils Châteauneuf-du-Pape Les Sinards 2013
I can`t recall I`ve drinked in a long time a wine that changes more with air contact.
(could it be a bottle shock? I bought the wine from Munich airport and opened it immediately after the flight)
But I mean wow! First straight from the bottle I was a bit disappointed; wine was totally shut down, austere, almost angry. I drunk only one glass and let it on the table overnight and after 24 hours, a complete change!
Absolutely intriguing and complex aromas: liquorice for days, smoke, forest floor, herbs, strawberries with whipped cream.
On the palate wine is silky smooth, with fine acidity and tannins. Super dry, but with a sort of inner sweetnes. Alc. totally integrated. Higly delicious, intensive and broad fruit; strawberries, raspberries, perfectly ripe with surprising freshness. Quite savory. Nice secondary notes: liquorice, gravel, smoked herbs, hint of mint. Long long smokey and herbal aftertaste.
Balanced, classical, earthy CdP. Loving it!
