2007 Perrin & Fils "Reserve" Côtes du Rhône

SKU #1045505

Many here will tell you this is the best deal we've got in all three stores, the warehouse, website, and every other corner where we've looked. It comes from the insanely good 2007 Rhône Valley vintage, and brings the noise like a wine five-times its price. Get in on this while it lasts. 89 points Robert Parker: "The 2007 Cotes du Rhone Reserve red (60% Grenache and the rest equal parts Syrah and Mourvedre) possesses beautiful crunchy, juicy, blackberry and cherry fruit as well as hints of underbrush, pepper, and black cherries. Medium-bodied and silky-textured, it is ideal for drinking over the next 3-4 years." (10/09) According to Wine Spectator: "A round, easy style, with a dusting of grilled herb over the open-knit red and black cherry fruit. There's a stony hint on the finish, which fills out nicely in the glass. Grenache, Syrah and Mourvèdre. Drink now." (09/09) 13% abv.

Great fruity nose, sweeter dark fruit flavor up front with an earthy and tannic finish. Better the second day, I think.. For the price, I can see why this is so popular.

FYI, this wine has no cork at all -- just a screw top. Right after pouring, it's all sour tang. After a few minutes, it mellows and seems to be all blackberry and fruity. Goes well with food. Later on, the fruitiness fades and there's a bit of earth and a touch of barnyard to keep it interesting but not funky. For the price, this is worth a try to see if it resonates with you. I'm looking for something a little more (at a higher price)

We had high expectations after reading the description and positive reviews. When we drank this wine, we got none of the black currants, licorice, almonds, etc that are mentioned in the description. It tasted like nothing. If I hadn't looked at the label and compared to what I see here online, I'd have thought I'd gotten the wrong wine. Thankfully it only cost $8.

Medium-bodied with smooth tannins, blackberry, black cherry, black pepper and spice. An easy wine to drink, but I preferred the Delas St-Esprit Côtes du Rhône.

Although light on depth or complexity, for the price, it is an ideal wine for daily consumption. The blend of Grenache, Syrah & Mouvedre is well proportioned and provides both a pleasant nose and a smooth taste.

Yes, this one's certainly all about the price point. The nose from the Grenache is rich and very fooling. The palate is hollow and lacking the juicy flavor you are tempted with from the nose. If you're not terribly discriminating and you are really really trying to stay under $10 then it's not a bad pick.

This is our new everyday table wine. Dinner guests love it and can't believe it when we tell them the price. What a great value!

Have to agree with the others here; Yum and Wow come to mind when I tasted this. All for $7.99. Its not super big but full enough that you'll be amazed and the quality for the price.

In a word: yummy. Not a huge body, but doesn't pose to have one. Impressive range for such a nimble wine. Good balance of fruit and spice. Goes down easy, maybe too easy?

Over the last few months, I've had quite a few bottles of this bargain. And, they keep getting better. Very smooth with lots of fruit and a hint of spice on the finish.
Drink to 2010

Country:

France

- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them. Click for a list of bestselling items from all of France.
Sub-Region:

Rhone

- Legendary wine-producing region in southeast France. Stereotypically speaking, Rhone wines are high in alcohol, and the majority produced is red. The northern Rhone is best known for outstanding 100% Syrah wines from areas such as Cote Rotie and Hermitage, as well as for fabulous white wines from Condrieu (where Viognier is king). In the southern Rhone, look for spicy, full-bodied wines that are blends of Grenache, Syrah, and other varietals coming from appellations such as Chateauneuf du Pape, Gigondas, or Rasteau. Wines labeled as Cote du Rhone or Cotes du Rhone Village (a cut above generic Cotes du Rhone) are frequently found here in the US because they often represent some of the best values on the market.
