Domaine Roger Perrin Cotes du Rhone Rouge 3 Ltr Bag in Box
Vineyards have existed on the Roger Perrin property between Orange and Chateauneuf de Pape since the beginning of the 1900's. However, estate bottling only began in 1969 when the Domaine was founded by Roger who took over after his father-in-law's retirement. In 1980, the estate began to sell its wine under its own name. The Domaine's holdings include 40 hectares of vineyards in Chateauneuf de Pape, Cotes du Rhone and Vin de Pays de la Principaute d'Orange. Spread out over 70 individual parcels, each sub-plot has its own distinct micro-terroir. And while some of the vines are more than 100 years old, the average age of the vines is 60 years old, and 85% of the vines are over 20 years of age. The Chateauneuf vines are planted on two types of soil, including a clay and limestone subsoil covered by the famous galets roules, and a sandier soil that yields wines that show a little more aromatic and tannic finesse.
This 2018 Bag in box Cotes du Rhone is crafted from Grenache, Syrah and Cinsault goblet trained on clay/limestone soils. Natural yeast fermentation with six months aging before released unfined and unfiltered.
