Pol Roger Portfolio is delighted to announce their appointment as agents for Maison Nicolas Perrin. This new joint venture, under the guidance and management of Nicolas Jaboulet, follows on from a long term friendship with the Perrin family of Chateau Beaucastel and sees a dedicated company set up as a boutique negociant to identify and work solely with quality-driven growers in each of the Appellations of the Northern Rhône. The initial release from Maison Nicolas Perrin sees both a Hermitage red and white, a Côte Rôtie and a Saint Joseph. The remaining Appellations will follow.
Nicolas Jaboulet commented that, "with my knowledge and considerable experience of the Northern Rhône, the selection and over-seeing of the winemaking and the subsequent link with Perrin's cellars, we will deliver wines which respect the terroir of the individual appellations. In addition Maison Nicolas Perrin's wines , through meticulous selection and elevage, will not be over-extracted but will be well balanced, elegant and food friendly and therefore suitable for restaurants and quality conscious retailers alike".
The short term aim of the company is to have their own property within the Northern Rhône. The first wines will be the 2007 vintage from Hermitage Rouge, Hermitage Blanc, Côte Rôtie and Saint Joseph. All of the Maison Nicolas Perrin wines are available Ex Cellars from Pol Roger Portfolio.
