The Perrachon family has been involved in the wine trade since 1601. Today, the fifth (Martine and Laurent) and sixth (Maxime and Adrien) generation run the domaine, which started producing estate wines in 1877. The domaine consists of 26 hectares in six Beaujolais Crus: Juliénas (where they are based), Morgon, Moulin-à-Vent, Fleurie, Chenas, and Saint-Amour. In addition to the Crus, the family also makes Beaujolais and Beaujolais-Villages; red, white and rosé. All grapes are hand-harvested and the wines are made traditionally with great care to express the terroir from where they come. 

The Domaine des Perelles Juliénas is made of 100% Gamay grown in diorites (blue stones) and granite soils from vines that are 55+ years-old, fermented in vat and aged for 12 months in a mix of concrete and old oak foudres. Juliénas is named after Julius Cesar, who once occupied the land and whose troops may have been growing vines back then. Mid-purple color with aromas and flavors of strawberry, peach, cinnamon and violets and a powerful palate with a strong acidic and mineral backbone that provides a perfect runway for the flavors to coast into a long, complex finish. Drink now or put a few bottles in the cellar to consume over the next 5 years. Enjoy with roast chicken served alongside crispy potatoes.
