Tablas Creek's Founding Families Honored

This September, Decanter Magazine honored Jean-Pierre and Francois Perrin, Founders and Partners at Tablas Creek, as their annual "Men of the Year" for their achievements in the Rhone, Provence and California.  Decanter praised them for having "dedicated themselves to elevating the reputation not only of the Perrin name, but of the Rhone and its grapes, around the world".  We join the wine community in saluting this remarkable family!

We were thrilled to receive such good reviews from this notoriously tough grader, including the 2012 Esprit de Tablas Blanc (92 points; “impeccably refined”), 2011 Panoplie (94 points; "pure elegance"), 2012 Patelin de Tablas (90 points; “a gorgeous wine and a fabulous value”), and the 2012 Esprit de Tablas (93-95 points; "a fascinating Esprit to follow over the coming years").
