xxx Brothers Jean-Pierre and Francois Perrin, of the prestigious Chateau Beaucastel, have spent over a decade seeking out the top vineyards of the Rhone. The result is a portfolio spanning the entire region and beyond. TaKing cenTer sTage in The souThern rhone h owever, it's in the village of Gigondas that they have begun to produce one of their top wines to rival the best that Châteauneuf-du-Pape has to offer. Renowned for its excellence, Clos des Tourelles is the only walled-in vineyard within the village of Gigondas. Its cool microclimate and soil, a mix of limestone, clay and compacted sand, provides the perfect location for the old-vine Grenache and Syrah which resides within. In the hands of the Perrin brothers, with their generations of collective experience, the results are nothing short of amazing. The 2010 Domaine du Clos des Tourelles is an achievement for both the Perrin brothers and Gigondas, a wine that can take center stage in the Southern Rhone.✦ famille Perrin Gigondas domaine du Clos des Tourelles 2010 RP 92–94 » $84 "...the real star is the 2010 Gigondas Clos des Tourelles. ...surreal concentration...textured and powerful..."
