Grenache/Syrah * 75cl * 13.5% ABV * Rhone Valley, France
‘Utterly sensational, 99 points,’ wrote Jeb Dennuck, Robert Parker’s former right-hand man, of Perrin’s 2016 Clos des Tourelles. Mainly made from Grenache with a touch of Syrah, this comes from a tiny plot of land just inside the village of Gigondas. A huge bouquet of blueberries, violets, smoked meat and crushed rocks – deep, full-bodied and seriously complex, yet weightless and agile. As supple as they come. Drink to 2036, if you can keep your hands off it!
