The color is a deep ruby with purple edges. The syrah grape shows on the nose, with red fruit, black cherries and licorice. On the palate this combines power with elegance, with its velvety, fleshy texture. The finish shows the lift typical of the cooler parts of the Rhone valley.

Terroir

Vinsobres ‘Les Cornuds’ comes from the Domaine Perrin vineyards at Domaine de la Bicarelle and from the 45 hectare Julien estate that lies right by the small village of Cornuds, on the northern side of the Vinsobres appellation.

Vinification

The wine is made at the Perrin & Fils winery in Vinsobres. 80% of the wine is aged in stainless-steel tanks and 20% is aged in barrels that have held two vintages. The wine is aged for a further 6 months in bottles before shipping. 

Winery


Winery Description

In 1321, under the reign of Pope John XXII, four barrels were brought from the papal cellar in Avignon to be filled with wine in Châteauneuf. In 1549 "Noble Pierre de Beaucastel" bought "a barn with its plot of land extending to 52 saumées at Coudoulet".

The Beaucastels were among the more notable families of this little town and in 1687 Pierre de Beaucastel, was appointed "Capitaine de la ville de Courthezon" by Louis XIV.

Two centuries later at the time of the phylloxera outbreak, the owner of Beaucastel was Elie Dussaud, companion of Ferdinand de Lesseps who constructed the Suez Canal. At that time the vineyard went out of production and it was not until 1909, when Pierre Tramier bought the property, that planting began again. Beaucastel was then passed to his son-in-law Pierre Perrin, a scientist who made great progress with the vineyard. His efforts were built on by Jacques Perrin, who lived until 1978. Today the torch is carried by the sons of Jacques.
