Say Perrin and you think of the magical castle Château de Beaucastel and the evocative Châteauneuf-du-Pape that is highly sought after worldwide. Beaucastel has existed since the beginning of the 17th century, but it was not until 1909, when the Perrin family became owners, that the then one hundred hectare domain underwent a real metamorphosis. More than a hundred years later, and now in its fifth generation, Perrin's empire has grown to 325 hectares of vineyards, the vast majority of which are in-house. After the success at Châteauneuf, the family began purchasing other plots of land in the southern Rhône.

Today they are active in the Côtes du Rhône Villages, Vinsobres, Cairanne, Rasteau, Gigondas, Vacqueyras, even Beaumes-de-Venise and Tavel and for several months now in Côtes de Provence with Château Miraval, the jont venture between Perrin and Jolie -Pitt (Brad Pitt & Angelina Jolie). All of them are excellently situated plots that are a maximum of 45 minutes from the home port of Orange and can therefore be inspected daily. The success that the family enjoys today is largely due to the late Jacques Perrin, from the third generation, a real 'biodynamist' avant la lettre. His philosophy? Good wine is made by letting the grape do its thing in the best possible natural conditions. And so it happened, because in 1964 all chemical fertilizers and weed killers were banned from the vineyard.

Even in the cellar, nothing is left to chance. The Perrins built an ultra-modern vinification cellar equipped with all technical gadgets on the nearby La Vieille Ferme estate. But the family will mainly go down in history as the masters of blenders. It is undeniably the great secret of the Perrins, who are convinced that blending the right grapes in the right quantities produces better wines. Something that is still done annually by the family. Over the course of five generations, the Perrin family has acquired several vineyards with the best terroirs in the southern Rhône Valley. These vineyards are managed and vinified according to the same principles and beliefs as Château de Beaucastel. Within the 'Famille Perrin' range you will discover the wealth of the southern Rhône Valley through various renowned appellations such as Gigondas, Vacqueyras, Vinsobres, Cairanne and Rasteau. Here too, the authenticity and essence of the terroir are central to all wines.

The grapes of this wine are slightly compressed after which they are completely pressed in an air press. After they have obtained the juice, it enters the fermentation process cool. 90% of the blend is done in steel barrels, and 10% of the blend goes into oak barrels in which the wine is moved less. A wonderful wine to drink as an aperitif or to accompany a simple meal, a very nice, everyday white wine. In the glass, the Luberon is bright, light straw yellow in color. On the nose aromas of citrus fruit, pear, fennel and white flowers. The taste palette shows notes of lemon, yellow stone fruit and a hint of vanilla, followed by a refreshing aftertaste with beautiful acidity.
