The Society's French Syrah 2021

Red Wine from France - Rhone
4.047620000 star rating 21 Reviews
This is a northern Rhône syrah, with elements from both banks including from Brézème, a micro-region a few miles to the south of Crozes-Hermitage. It offers plenty of colour and fresh-tasting blueberry fruit with a touch of spice. The syrah wines of the northern Rhône are often distinguished by the blackberry fruit that makes them so appealing, and these berries are the inspiration for the new label for our French Syrah.

Nicolas Perrin

Maison Nicolas Perrin was formed in 2009 when two families joined forces from opposite ends of the Rhône. Nicolas, from the famous Jaboulet family, grew up in the Hermitage hillsides in the north of the region, whereas the Perrin family has been settled in and around the southern Rhône’s Châteaneuf-du-Pape appellation (most notably at Château de Beaucastel) since 1909.

Nicolas Perrin classes itself as a 'boutique négociant', buying in casks of wines from well-known, respected northern Rhône growers. These are carefully blended by the team, and matured in oak casks to enhance both their character and their ageing potential. The aim of the finished product is fresh, harmonious whites and reds with sophisticated concentration.

Following French tradition, the distinctive terroir of each appellation is of the utmost importance to Nicolas Perrin. The company produces exclusively northern Rhône wines, sourced from growers whose vineyards benefit from the region’s typically granite soils and excellent exposure. Syrah is the only red grape present in its wines, whereas the white grapes used are the Rhône’s classic viognier, marsanne and roussanne varieties.

Nicolas Perrin wines range from inexpensive (but delicious) unclassified blends to the prestigious Côte-Rôtie. The company also helps The Society blend our Exhibition Crozes-Hermitage: Nicolas uses his extensive contacts to buy wines from a selection of renowned growers, and the wine is then blended and bottled by the Perrins.

Interestingly, Nicolas Perrin is particularly passionate about partnering its wines with food, so much so that it has collaborated with the head chef at Château de Beaucastel to research food and wine matching in greater depth.
