2013 Maison Nicolas Perrin  (Côte-Rôtie) 91

Fresh, lively, medium bodied, with bright red fruits with a hint of floral aromatics. The wine is elegant, bright and crisp with a sweet, black raspberry finish. The wine was made from a blend of 96% Syrah and 4% Vioginer and aged in mostly used French oak barrels, only 10% were new.

2012 Maison Nicolas Perrin Ermitage  (Hermitage) 92

There is an easy, likable charm to this wine, which is not common for a young Hermitage. The wine is smoky, fresh, clean, pure and shows ripe, spicy, dark red fruits, with stone and polished tannic feel to the finish.

2010 Maison Nicolas Perrin  (Côte-Rôtie) 92

On the floral side of the style range, with fresh, vibrant, sweet, black raspberries, peppery cherries and just a hint of smoke and thyme. The fruit displays a good sense of purity and freshness in the soft textured, peppery finish. This is a nice wine and a fair value for Cote Rotie, which is an increasingly expensive region to buy wine from. The bottle was decanted about 2 hours before we started tasting it and it made a perfect match with the grilled pork chops.

2010 Maison Nicolas Perrin Ermitage  (Hermitage) 91

Far too young, 2 hours in the decanter was barely enough to get the wine started. But as this was my first time tasting this wine, I was anxious to give it a spin. Tannic, concentrated and filled with peppery, blackberries, spicy black cherries, wet earth and just a bit of oak, this very young wine had a lot of freshness and the structure to age. I'd give it a decade before popping a bottle, if I had any.
