Domaine Laurent Perrachon et Fils, Corcelette, 2017, Morgon, Beaujolais, France
£21.75 (inc VAT)
Rich, meaty and intensely flavoured. Manly, but sophisticated. Form a queue.
This handpicked Morgon from granite and schist soils undergoes only semi carbonic maceration and partial oak ageing, the result is rich, meaty and intensely flavoured.
Records show that Perrachon's winemaking ancestry goes back to at least 1601, so they are pretty proud of their tradition. Ever since then, the family have been adding new vineyards to the domain. They now have 26 hectares spanning 8 appellations and 6 Crus. Martine, Laurent and their children grow their vines sustainably and focus on selling their wines through little guys who love them, like Humble Grape.
