Mâcon-Villages Perrelles, , Domaine des Perelles

Mâcon-Villages Perrelles

Origin: Chânes, Burgundy, France

Regional appellation of the Mâconnais wine growing district. Separated by a series of parallel faults, the hills of the Mâconnais are linked along axes which give them either a North/North-Westerly or a South/South-Easterly exposure. The vines take readily to these hillsides. The clay and limestone soils are ideal conditions for producing outstanding chardonnays.

Winemaker's Notes

A superb golden colour with subtle shades of green. When young it displays perfumes of spring flowers and exotic fruits, later revealing aromas of dried fruit and toasted bread. In the mouth it is flattering, supple and mellow.

Pouilly-Fuissé Perelles, , Domaine des Perelles

Pouilly-Fuissé Perelles

Origin: Chânes, Burgundy, France

Pouilly-Fuissé

Grape Variety

Chardonnay 100%

Alcohol by Volume

ABV 13.0%

Winemaker's Notes

A rich and flavoursome wine with much finesse and distinction. The nature of the land favours a harmonious blend of flavours, with hints of nuts and grilled almonds. It's vigour and richness mean that this wine can be kept for a long time before opening.

Saint Veran, , Domaine des Perelles

Saint Veran

Origin: Chânes, Burgundy, France

The Saint-Veran appellation is split into two separate islands by its close relative Pouilly Fuisse. Both occupy slopes forming part of the chain of hills to which the Rock of Solutré belongs. The vines grow on fossiliferous limestone soils, often overlain by a layer of clay with flints (Chailles).

Grape Variety

Chardonnay 100%

Alcohol by Volume

ABV 13.0%

Winemaker's Notes

Pale yellow gold in colour but brilliant and crystal clear. This dry but ample wine is tender and fruity, displaying aromas of peach, citrus, honeysuckle and dried fruit. On the palate it is mineral and lively from the first attack, fresh and well rounded. The structure is harmonious, fresh and round.
