Domaine Roger Perrin "Châteauneuf-du-Pape"
Description: Vineyards have existed on the Roger Perrin property between Orange and Châteauneuf since the beginning of the 1900's. However, the Domaine Roger Perrin was founded in 1969 when Roger Perrin took over the domaine after his father-in-law's retirement. Perrin's holdings include 37 hectares (91 acres) of vineyards, spread out over sixty-one plots. While some of the vines are more than 100 years old, the average age of the vines is 60 years old. 85% of the vines are over 20 years of age. The Châteauneuf vines are planted on two types of soil: clay and limestone subsoil covered by galets roules so familiar to anyone who has seen Châteauneuf vineyards. The second type of soil has much more sand to it and gives wines that show a little more aromatic and tannic finesse.
