Famille Perrin, Reserve du Mistral, Vinsobres 2014
A one-off ‘when it’s gone, it’s gone’ parcel secured by Majestic, you will need to act quickly to snap this up. But if you can, you will be rewarded with a fantastic wine that punches above its weight. It is a 50/50 blend of Grenache and Syrah, with spicy black fruit aromas that sit alongside rich bacon fat. Stylish and juicy black fruit flavours feature a touch of liquorice and a gently flowing acidity. Blueberry and blackcurrant flavours pop on the finish. This is exactly the level of quality expected from the family behind Château de Beaucastel.
