The Macon Villages is all grown in the Perraud`s vineyards in the communes or Villages of La Roche Vineuse, Verzé, Hurigny and Salornay sur Guy. Clay and chalk.
The grapes were machine harvested in the cool of early morning. This ensured a quick turnaround so that the precious melon and citrus character was kept intact, without danger of oxidation. In conversion to organic farming.
Wild yeasts were used for the fermentation, in stainless steel vats. Malolactic fermentation and ageing for 8 months on lees in stainless steel vats and oak barrels.
The Domaine Perraud is ideally situated in the village of La-Roche-Vineuse, a stone’s throw from the famous rocky outcrops of Solutré and Vergisson. A passion for excellence guides the work of this Domaine.
Domaine Perraud grow Chardonnay, Aligoté, Gamay and Pinot Noir grapes on argilo-calcareous marls situated over five different villages. They limit the use of treatments and aim to produce fully organic wines in the near future. In the meantime, they cultivate the soils in such a way as to preserve the very best expression of their various “terroirs”.
Nothing is added to the wines to keep the full expression of the grapes and the terroir. The wines are vinified plots by plots. Wines are aged in stainless steel vats and oak barrels.

The link between the name and labels
Charles Perrault was the author of Little Red Riding Hood, Little Thumb, Cindrella and many other famous stories. The estate and Charles has different names but with the same pronunciation, which is why the logo and labels are liked.
