  • A beautiful blend between Syrah and Grenache. Great freshness, delicate notes of fresh black fruit slightly over-ripe, sweet spices. The generous mouth, offers elegant tannins full of finesse and the finish is full of character, firm and mineral.
    Pairs well with steaks, beef stew, chicken and aged cheeses.
  • Sourced from the terroir of Vinsobres, a beautiful village located 40 kilometres north of Châteauneuf du Pape at an altitude of 300 meters, primarily on terraces, there are stony and sandy marl on the slopes and stony quaternary alluviums on the terraces. Vinsbores is particularly suitable for Syrah, giving it that great finesse we tend to loose further south, as well as Grenache and its these two grapes that are used in the Famille Perrin 'Les Cornuds' red blend.
  • The entire harvest is destemmed. Syrah is vinified in wooden truncated tanks that are punched down and pumped over. The Grenache is vinified in stainless steel tanks. The Syrah is partly aged in one year old oak barrels. Blending takes place after malolactic fermentation and the wines age for a least 6 months before being released.
  • 91 POINTS! Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, 2015 vintage

    "One of two releases from Vinsobres, which is located in the northern, cooler part of the Southern Rhône Valley. From higher elevation and cooler sites, the 2015 Vinsobres Les Cornuds is a 50/50 split of Grenache and Syrah. It should end up being an outstanding wine and offers lots of black fruits, pepper and garrigue in a full-bodied, seriously textured and layered style"

    90 POINTS! Wine Spectator, 2014 vintage

    "On the fresher side of the spectrum, with cassis and plum fruit inlaid with light floral and iron accents. Modest toast lets the iron note extend nicely through the finish. Drink now through 2020."

    90 POINTS! Wine & Spirits Magazine, 2013 vintage

    "From a vineyard at the northern edge of the southern Rhone, this evokes cooler climes in its lean, peppery red fruit. And yet the wine feels substantial, a firm minerality lending its breadth and length. Pair it with a juicy, rare steak."
