Description: The Perrachon family settled in Juliénas in 1601 and established the estate of Laurent Perrachon & Fils in 1877. Today, the 7th generation of winemakers carries on its ancestor’s tradition with the same aim: to express the essence of the terroir. The winemaking process is similar to a classic Burgundian style, with a large portion being destemmed as opposed to whole cluster, carbonic maceration like the wines classified as Beaujolais-Nouveau. Perrachon uses indigenous yeasts and a long maceration time to extract the broadest palate of flavors, complexity and structure. The wines are aged in the estate's vaulted cellars that were built in 1701. This vigorous wine has an intense ruby hue. Produced on clay soil, its bouquet is dominated by fruit aromas- peach, red fruit- and flowers.
