2017 Julienas Les Mouilles Domaine Laurent Perrachon (Bottle - 1/75cl)
From the sister vineyard of Julienas Roche Bleue comes wine from slightly older Gamay vines, averaging 50 years. Carrying aromas peony and violet flowers this wine is a perfect accompaniament to chicken in wine or cream sauces.
This domaine, on the La Bottiere Estate in Julienas (Beaujolais), dates from 1877. Currently the fifth (Martine and Laurent) and sixth (Maxime and Adrian) generations work on the estate. They have added Domaine des Perelles to the Romanèche-Thorins territory, situated near the Moulin-à-Vent hills. Their latest purchase is Domaine des Mouilles, now the heart of their operations, acquired in 1989.
Before starting to work with his father, Jacques, Laurent Perrachon decided to see more of the world. He started at Chateau Ausone where he completed his school qualifications and following that, travelled around South African and Californian vineyards. In 1988 Laurent returned to his roots in the Beaujolais area to work with his Dad.
Laurent says, "it is mind opening to look at what others do in different places. I am curious and ready to adopt new ideas". Every year, he invests in new equipment, in improving the cellars, and adding new parcels to the domaine. Currently, Laurent and the rest of the family look after 23 hectares in Beaujolais. They harvest grapes on six appellations: Julienas, of course, also Morgon with the famous vineyard Cote de Py, Moulin-à-Vent, Fleurie, Chenas and their latest addition, Saint-Amour.
