Famille Perrin Châteauneuf du Pape Blanc – Les Sinards is an extremely rare wine comes from a 2.5 acre vineyard located within the “clos” around the historical pope’s palace. All of the viticulture is carried out by the Beaucastel team.
The 2014 vintage is surprising for the region. It is characterised by a mild, damp winter, a hot and dry spring and a temperate and humid summer. An unusual year, a winemaker year. Bud break was very early, flowering took place in ideal conditions and fruit set was excellent, especially on Grenache. However, work in the vineyard and rigorous monitoring of the vineyard until harvest were necessary with wet months of July and August, favouring the vegetative growth. The harvest of white grapes took place under bright sunshine, with very nice analytical balances.
