Good smell, but surprisingly thin body. I do not like when the smell is promising more than what the taste gives. The other way around is more fun. This just disappoints you. Not one of the good years. Drink now. (=)

    I have been a fan of this estate’s wines for some years. They are routinely tight and light to start…not picked ultra late and when the grapes are drying out.

    I have been privileged to taste old vintages of Roger Perrin and can say the wines age handsomely. They have a lot of old vineyards and these are a bit slow to develop once bottled. It’s nice that some estates make wines which are classically-styled and not intended for “immediate gratification,” but which can and do age well.

    The secret is in the structure of the wine…high acidity prolongs the wine and allows it to age well. Wines of this nature are difficult to assess, especially if one doesn’t have the perspective of tasting old vintages.
