  • Showing great, light gold color, high toned nose of minerally honey, acacia blooms, slate... Lower acidity on the palate, unctuous, needs the right food but a slow roasted salmon dish did the trick.

  • This is my prefered vintage. Very nice to drink now but should improve in the coming years. Could become one of the top Perrin blanc ever.

  • Blind tasting for my guests. Nose is restrain; unspecific of gasoline, orange zest. Behind an interesting touch of smoke. The mouth is full of honey, kiwi fruit, mango (without spice). The end is rich, rounded by alcohol, with a strong bitterness like orange peal jammed. Obviously it lacks some acidity, wich let the bitter overtake. The length is long. Again, sadly, there's a lot of effort for seduction, but it is unbalanced. Harvest to late in this sunny region. Wich doesn't mean that it is impossible to reach a lower "Ph".
    It has been served with a roasted seabass, safran and tarragon. The match was perfect; the olive oil flatened the bitterness, witch let the tasters feal all the fruits in a silky impression. So should I rate the wine (88) or the match (92) ?
    I know by experience of my region, that there's no potential for aging, the fruits will jam, but the acidity will decrease, and the impression of bitterness will rise. The food match will be even more difficult (witch has saved this one today).
