Famille Perrin Chateauneuf du Pape 'Les Sinards' 2015

Product description

2015 is an exceptional vintage in the appellation. This wine expresses marvelously the beauty of the vintage. Intense red with purple reflections, Les Sinards 2015 expresses an intense bouquet of red and black fruit, sweet spices, noble wood and mineral notes. The mouth is incredibly balanced between freshness and volume, the tannins are fine and elegant, the finish is very long, aromatic, and sweet.

92 Points - Jeb Dunnuck

The 2015 Chateauneuf Du Pape Les Sinards is the entry level red and it's a blend of mostly Grenache blended with smaller amounts of Syrah and Mourvèdre. Kirsch, black raspberries, olive tapenade and leafy herbs all give way to a medium to full-bodied, supple, seamless, silky wine that's already impossible to resist. Drink it over the coming 8-10 years.

92 Points - Wine Spectator

Dark plum and boysenberry compote notes form the core, giving this weight and depth, while bright anise, black tea and violet notes streak through, giving this cut and lift. Reveals a light juniper echo through the finish. Best from 2020 through 2030.
