France – Philosophy in a bottle

According to French philosophy, wine should be an expression of the soil and climate. They use the word “terroir” to describe this. Terroir makes every wine different, and many especially good. French wine is regarded worldwide as an expression of cultural perfection. The French believe that humans are responsible for the quality of the berries, the vine variety for their character, and nature for the quantity. This philosophy can be expressed succinctly as: “the truth is the vineyard, not the man.”



Burgundy: home of the crus

Burgundy and Bordeaux are France’s most prestigious wine regions. Nonetheless, they are completely distinct in character: while Bordeaux, as the land of the chateaux, enjoys an aristocratic image, Burgundy has retained its rustic agrarian structure. Burgundy stretches for over 200 kilometres, from Dijon in the north to Lyon in the south. In a highly complex jigsaw of the most diverse of terroirs, Chardonnay and Pinot Noir demonstrate the subtle ways in which they embody their sources.


Domaine Laurent Perrachon & Fils

Since 1877 the family's own vineyards have been cultivated by the 5th and 6th generation.

Established in Juliénas in 1877, we are the 5th (Laurent and Martine) and 6th generation (Adrien and Maxime) to run the family vineyards. The estate now extends over 6 Beaujolais vineyards: Juliénas / Moulin à Vent / Morgon / Chénas / Fleurie and Saint-Amour and also in Beaujolais Villages. In 2019, we acquired an additional 1.70 ha in Pouilly-Fuissé. We continue the work of our ancestors by upholding a time-honoured tradition, as the first mention of the PERRACHON family in the history of winegrowers in Juliénas dates back to 1601. We work the traditional way, hand-picking and goblet pruning. Our yield per vine is one of the lowest in France, but this guarantees the quality and authenticity of our wines: 6 vineyards in Beaujolais, Chénas, Fleurie, Juliénas, Morgon, Moulin-à-Vent and Saint Amour, our Beaujolais / Villages (red, rosé and white) and Pouilly-Fuissé. We also produce single-vineyard selections, from only the best plots of the estate on selected vineyards.

Grape varieties


King or beggar?

Hardly any variety of vine shows such a broad spectrum of quality as the Chardonnay. Its wines range from faceless neutrality to breath-taking class. It is an extremely low-maintenance vine, which explains why it is grown around the world – even in places where it probably should not be. The aromas of the Chardonnay variety are not very pronounced: a bit of green apple, a little hazelnut; in warmer latitudes, also melon and exotic fruits. The wines are often defined by maturing in casks. They develop more or less subtle notes of butter, toasted bread and vanilla. The grapes achieve their highest expression in their region of origin, Burgundy. Its heart beats in the Côte de Beaune: one might think of the plant growth of Meursault or Puligny-Montrachet. With their finesse and complexity, they can survive for decades. Chardonnay also achieves first class in some Blanc-de-Blancs champagnes. It additionally yields great wines in the Burgundian Chablis, and increasingly in Australia and Chile. A simple rule of thumb for pairing with food: When butter and cream are involved, you cannot go wrong with Chardonnay.
