In January we took a flight down to the Rhone to spend some time with the Perrin family. Over the course of 24 hours we saw the traditions that have made Chateau de Beaucastel and the family’s other wines some of the most revered and well-known in the region, and critically how improvements are being made to maintain and increase their importance over the coming years.

Regular readers of these blogs will know that since the early 1990’s, I have been fortunate enough to be a member of the “Southwold Group” of wine merchants and critics that gets together every year to hold a comprehensive blind tasting of the top wines of Bordeaux in the lastest vintage to physically released. This year it was the turn of 2014 to come under our spotlight. After last year’s rather underwhelming 2013 tasting we were back on solid ground.
