Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) January 24, 2013
In his most recent newsletter, Larry Kantrowitz of Capital City Package talks about an exciting addition to the Atlanta liquor store’s impressive wine selection. Capital City is now offering a Syrah Viognier blend from France’s Maison Nicolas Perrin, a joint venture consisting of Marc Perrin and Nicolas Jaboulet. The advertised bottle is a blend of Syrah from the north, which provides a hearty base flavor with black fruits and herbs on the nose and palate, and 3% Viognier, which balances the blend by offering a softness and a floral finesse. “This wine is so much fun to drink that it’s impossible not to keep going back to the wine every few minutes just to take in the aroma,” says Kantrowitz. Capital City Package offers this Syrah Viognier blend for $16.99.
The experienced wine drinker will recognize the names Perrin and Jaboulet as those of two highly-respected vintner families. The Perrin family owns Château Beaucastel in the southern part of the Rhône valley in France, while the Jaboulet family’s Hermitage La Chapelle from the northern Rhône is one of the most famous Syrahs in the world. The younger generation of the Perrin and Jaboulet families, Marc Perrin and Nicolas Jaboulet formed Maison Nicolas Perrin in 2009. Unrestricted by fixed costs due to its ability to use the Perrin family’s cellars, the team is able to create quality wines without being obligated to produce large quantities to cover cost.
