Grown in beautiful vineyards and on soil, which is extremely rich in the mineral manganese (which helps the vines impart a special flavour to the grapes), this is supple and lingering on the palate. The wine fills the mouth with ripe, rich red cherry fruit flavours with hints of fresh raspberries and spices. From a tiny plot of vines situated in les Versauds, planted in the 1920's.

We have worked with this lovely family since the early 1990’s, 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 Bottière lieu-dit in Juliénas. Currently, the Perrachon’s are working towards 100% lutte-raisonnée (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 Juliénas cru and is very involved in the development of individual lieu-dit sites which he promotes on his own labels.
