Wine Details

Deep purple with smoky cedar, blackberry and gravel notes on the nose, the wine delivers ripe blackberry, blackcurrant, mocha, and earth on the beautifully textured, spicy palate. Full bodied with moderate tannins. Excellent example of a left-bank Cabernet-based blend and an exceptional value in Bordeaux.

Cam Confidential

Château Perron is in the Graves region of Bordeaux, famous for its gravelly soils and now part of the portfolio of the Guignard Brothers’ (who specialize in Graves). Their family has been growing grapes in the area since 1610 (Château Perron was actually originally founded by the owners of Haut-Brion in the 1500s!). The gravelly limestone soils of this estate produce intense wines, and the 2010 vintage is a fantastic introduction to the Graves region. Combining traditional style with modern winemaking, the 2010 Perron Rouge is a blend of 60% Cabernet, 30% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc aged in 30% new French oak for 12 months.

What i love about this wine is that it's not typical Bordeaux style and it's not typical "international" style either. It's right in between. It has the great fruit, acidity and structure. I could drink this every day.

A quality base line Bordeaux, with a medium plus body and smooth tannins. The minerality is there, but nothing distracting. In fact, I would say what was most noticeable for this wine, a Bordeaux in this price range, was the absence of anything distracting, leaving just a nice Bordeaux taste to enjoy.
