Tasting notes

The nose is precise with beautiful perfumes of quince, honeysuckle and verbena. The palate is very nicely balanced with bright acidity and a round, creamy mouthfeel. Flavours of stone fruit including apricot are complemented by hints of cloves and a fresh, lively, salivating finish.

Pairing

Chicken with a cream sauce, sole meuniere, and sweetbreads.

Winery Description

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.

The Terroir
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”.

The Vinification
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.

Jean Christophe Perraud
In 2005, Jean-Christophe realized his childhood dream by creating the Domaine on family-owned vineyards which go back four generations.

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.
