Perrin Reserve Côtes du Rhône Blanc 2010 ~ A white for all seasons

Produced by the Perrin Family with nearly a century of wine making legacy, and grapes sourced from the southern region of France near Cairanne and Joquieres, this full bodied, yet fresh, white wine is a blend of 50% Grenache Blanc, 20% Viognier, 15% Marsanne, 15% Roussanne.

There are green apple and kiwi aromas; with fresh grapefruit and citrus flavors upon the first sip. The finish is creamy and lush. All this suggests this wine can bridge the gap between a summer and winter white wine.

Perrin Reserve Cotes du Rhone Blanc

This wine is quite at home sipping alone on the porch, or with a meal. The diversity and crowd pleasing qualities make this a ‘go to white’ when you want something other than a Chardonnay or Sauvignon Blanc.

Pair this wine with fresh salads, Mediterranean and seafood dishes.

Alcohol 13%

Retails at $12 (found at Trader Joes, Washington, DC for $9.50)

From the Côtes du Rhône region of southern France
