Grape Variety: Grenache, Marsanne, Roussane, Viognier
The nose has plenty of minerals, passionfruit, citrus and hints of stone fruits and sweet spice. The taste follows the nose with notes of white flowers, guava, and a nectarine. The wine is very fresh, soft, round and with a good weight, and a long clean finish. Incredibly well balanced, Famille Perrin CdR Reserve is aromatic and sapid, with notes of white florals, great freshness and superb depth. It will be a wonderful match for Mediterranean dishes and fish.
