In an appellation where many growers have vines more than 100 years old, Domaine Roger Perrin is on the young side as it was formed in 1969 by Roger Perrin. However, the vineyards were in existence before that as they date back to about the start of the 20th century. Domaine Roger Perrin has 15.63 hectares of vines in the Chateauneuf du Pape appellation. 13.6 hectares are devoted to making red Chateauneuf du Pape wine and 2 hectares are used for growing grapes to make white Chateauneuf du Pape wine. The vineyards are divided into 61 separate parcels that are dispersed in different lieux-dits in Chateauneuf du Pape. Most of their vines are planted in two different soil types, rocks and stones over clay and limestone and they have also sandy soils as well. The average of their vines is more than 60 years of age, with some vines being more than 100 years old. The nose has aromas of red and black fruits, pepper, a touch of vanilla with some gamey undertones. The palate is ample and generous with a very pronounced length, a nice final touch of fine tannins and a remarkable balance. A good value in the world of Chateauneuf-du-Pape which is drinking well now.
