Domaine Perraud

Burgundy, burgundy France

Until 2005, the Perraud family was one of many making their living from growing grapes for the local co-operative. Encouraged by his parents, Jean-Christophe Perraud, at the age of 24, began to make and bottle wine from the family’s 30 hectares of Bourgogne, Mâcon and Saint-Véran vineyards. Produced from what the Perraud family describe as ‘young vines’ (both the Chardonnay and the Aligoté are on average 18 years old), the wines show remarkable elegance and complexity at modest price tags. Domaine Perraud is a fine example of a young producer striking out on his own, with the family’s vineyards, to create what will soon be one of the Mâconnais’ most respected domaines.

Jean-Christophe’s Mâcon-Villages Chardonnay is really a cut above the rest and has an attractive clean, green apple fruit character. The Bourgogne Aligoté is a refreshing ‘vin de soif’ for immediate drinking, with racy acidity and appealing lime citrus flavours. The Saint-Véran is a step up again, showing extra intensity, creaminess and a lovely acidity on the finish.
