Domaine Laurent Perrachon et Fils "Les Burdelines", Moulin à Vent, 2019, Beaujolais, France
£27.75 (inc VAT)
A powerful Moulin à Vent Beaujolais, aged in new oak more like a great Pinot Noir Burgundy. One of his special cuv̩es, this really shows of Laurent's winemaking skills and appreciation of other markets.
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.
