"The young vines from Beaucastel contribute fruit to this bottling, but the 2017 Chateauneuf du Pape les Sinards deserves to stand on its own. It's a complex, floral, seductive blend of roses, raspberries, cherries and blueberries. Full-bodied and lush, it should be consumed over the next decade or so." (WA)

"Moving to the Châteauneuf Du Pape releases, the entry-level 2017 Châteauneuf Du Pape Les Sinards offers a medium to full-bodied, elegant, fruit-forward style that carries plenty of garrigue, dried earth, and charcuterie notes. It’s a total charmer to enjoy over the coming 6-8 years.

In addition to the Château de Beaucastel releases, the Perrin family also releases a bevy of brilliant wines under their Famille Perrin label. Certainly, the Gigondas releases are the standouts, yet readers shouldn’t miss their Vinsobres releases; the flagship Les Hauts De Julien possibly one of the finest Syrahs dominated blend made in the southern Rhône!"
