Quite a few years ago this Perrin Côtes du Rhône was a house wine at Le Pichet here in Seattle. It has been one of those wines that has stayed with us over time for its versatility and extraordinary value. The label has changed over the years, but luckily what is in the bottle has not. This is red house wine of the highest order. Perfect paired with many foods, great to serve at a party, and lovely to have solo when you are chatting with friends. This is also the bottle I reach for when recipes call for red wine to be added. Good wine does not have to cost a bundle, and this Perrin Réserve Côtes du Rhône is proof of that.
