Simpler than I had hoped but still good. Just not as good as the Courbis Ch ampelrose. The Perrin is the more modern style which is fruit forward. At f irst it comes across as an Aussie Torbreck, but after 4 hours of decanting some dust and mineral comes out. It could be that it is just too young. bu t I detected no tannins. Dark forrest fruits, smooth drinking, some dust an d mineral if you let it breathe. Its cheaper than Courbis, similar price as Vincent Granite 60. I think the granite60 is better, and Courbis is even b etter.

I was like: who the heck is Nicolas Perrin? I know or know of lots of Perrins (big family), but never even heard of Nicolas.
Turns out, an invented person, joint venture between Nicolas Jaboulet and Marc Perrin.
Argh. Wot a woild...
