Famille Perrin

The Perrin family owns Château de Beaucastel in Châteauneuf-du-Pape, which is often referred to as the "benchmark estate" of the Southern Rhône (Robert M. Parker Jr.). They are the largest landholders in the region, and as such also boast prime parcels of ancient vines in value appellations like Vinsobres and Gigondas.
Increasingly their focus is on expressing the unique characteristics of these parcels through small plot "cru" bottlings, made with the same attention and care as their top cuvées and released in limited quantities to great critical acclaim and staunch consumer/collector following.
