Maison Nicolas Perrin brings together the scions of two of the great families of the Rhône, Nicolas Jaboulet, formerly of the eponymous winery in Tain, and the Perrin family of Château de Beaucastel. This joint venture micro-négociant was created in 2009 with the sole aim of producing top quality Northern Rhône wines. Nicolas is able to source the best fruit and wines from growers and producers that he has formed a long standing relationship with, while the Perrin family bring expertise in winemaking and blending, as well as the use of their cellars. The partnership stems from a long standing friendship, a shared love of gastronomy and a philosophy to create wines that represent the best of their appellation.
The grapes sourced for this wine are grown at relatively high altitude in the mountainous part of the Ardèche area.
Fermentation and ageing took place in stainless steel tanks at low temperatures. Nicolas and Marc's aim was to preserve the freshness and aromatics of the wine. The Viognier was bottled during early Spring 2015.
Pale gold in colour with bright undertones. Aromatic, this Viognier has notes of citrus fruit and white flowers. The wine is crisp and mineral with good tension on the palate and a lovely finish.
