Laurent Perrachon Beaujolais Blanc 2022 Terre de Loyse, Burgundy, France

The Perrachon family acquired the domain of la Bottière, in Juliénas, in 1877. Then came the Domaine des Perelles on the Romanèche-Thorins territory, at the feet of the Moulin-à-Vent hills. The Domaine des Mouilles, now the heart of our operations, was acquired in 1989. It is the heart of the Julienas appellation, benefiting from the best exposure and the best soils. Recently, they added smaller parcels in Chénas, Fleurie, and Saint Amour. Unexpected and delicious, Beaujolais Blanc wine is becoming increasingly popular. Made from the Chardonnay grape, known locally as the “Perle Blanche” (white pearl), this wine develops subtle perfumes of white blossom with a touch of citrus fruit. Serve chilled at 10° C, for any special occasion. AOC, Cru du Beaujolais. Varietal: Chardonnay. Average age of the vines: 20 years. Soil: Siliceous-clay, limestone clay. Winemaker’s notes: Manual picking, pneumatic press. Thermoregulated fermentation between 15 and 17 degrees C in stainless steel vats. Estate bottled.
