Domaine Roger Perrin ChateauneufA stunning wine from a stellar vintage. Domaine Roger Perrin is one of the brightest lights in Chateauneuf du Pape, producing some of the best wines in the AOC. Vineyards have existed on the Perrin property since the 1900s and the vines lie on the long ridge that stretches from Chateauneuf du Pape down to Orange. The Domaine lies on the ‘galet’ stones (round, heat absorbing rocks) that Chateauneuf du Pape is famous for. Soils here were formed from ancient riverbeds and are typically dry, sandy and pebble-strewn . . . ideal conditions for producing iconic Chateauneuf du Pape.

Ancient Chateauneuf du Pape’s history is entwined with the Papacy and it’s wines were known as ‘Vin de Papes’ (Wine of the Pope) centuries before the AOC took the name of Chateauneuf du Pape. The legacy dates back to the 14th century when the village became the summer residence for Pope Clement V (who also owned Chateau Pape Clement in Pessac Leognan, Bordeaux). Today Chateauneuf du Pape wines traditionally bear the Papal insignia and regalia embossed in their heavy glass bottles. chateauneuf

An exceptional vintage; the year 1999 was an outstanding year for the Rhone. The Domaine Roger Perrin 1999 bears all the hallmarks of a great Chateauneuf du Pape: the herbal aromas of the garrigue and savoury notes of game. Chateauneuf du Pape wines from good estates often require long cellaring before being approachable and the 1999 vintage is drinking beautifully now. Being fuller bodied the 1999 is delicious with venison, wild boar, long-hung game birds, goose, aged beef, lamb, rabbit, rich casseroles and cheese.
