2023 La Vieille Ferme Blanc at an amazing price

"Jean-Pierre Perrin established La Vieille Ferme over 45 years ago, as an affordable straightforward Rhône wine to sell by direct mail to French wine lovers. He used the same grape varieties in similar proportions to those planted at the family’s Château de Beaucastel and employed a similar vinification process" - importer

"One of the Perrins- worldwide successes has been their least expensive wine, now in screw cap, La Vieille Ferme. Basically this is an under-$10 wine in both white and red that is exceptionally well-made, and the ideal inexpensive introduction to the viticulture of southern France" - Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate

2023 La Vieille Ferme Blanc....$6.99
Compare to $9.49 at Total Wine and More, Fairview Heights
Elegant pale yellow-green colour with silver highlights. This wine opens with a nose full of freshness with notes of lemon and pear delicately mixed with a bouquet of small white flowers. These aromas linger on the palate with beautiful tension and a remarkable balance between juicy fruit and lots of freshness. The finish is saline bringing a delicate hint of bitterness which gives this wine length and flavour.
If you enjoy quaffable wines, this one is ideal as an aperitif or paired with a simple meal.
