Julienas 'Les Mouilles' 2021 Domaine Perrachon
Currently in its prime, this wine has a ripe, black-fruit nose with a succulent, softly-textured palate, with a touch of spice and refreshing, acidity.
We have worked with this lovely family since the early 1990s, when we first started buying wines from Laurent Perrachon's father, Jacques. Fifth generation vignerons, Laurent and Martine Perrachon, have recently been joined by their sons, Maxime and Adrien. The former is very much concerned with viticulture whilst Adrien is to be found in the cellars and involved in the wine making side of the business. This is an important 30-hectare estate, situated in the la Bottiere lieu-dit in Julienas. Currently, the Perrachons are working towards 100% lutte-raisonnee (sustainable viticulture) and only mechanically working their soils, removing any need for weed-killers. This is a domaine that is very much on the up and in 2018, they received one of the few, highly coveted Coup de Coeurs awarded by La Revue de Vin de France. Laurent Perrachon is the current president of the Julienas cru and is very involved in the development of individual lieu-dit sites which he promotes on his own labels. .
