2016 PERRAUD "TERRES BLANCHES" BEAUJOLAIS-VILLAGES BLANC
Only 150 cases produced! From a small plot located in the lieu-dit “Saint-Vincent” in Quincie-en-Beaujolais near the Cru Brouilly with Southern East exposure with soil composed of clay and granitic sand. All hand-harvested, with grapes directly pressed at arrival in the cellar. Fermentation with native yeasts followed by partial aging in barrels and stainless steel vats on lees for six months. The result is a lovely and round Chardonnay with aromas and flavors of white flower, almond, apple and citrus. The palate is juicy with a slight buttery texture and some mineral and smoky notes. For goat cheese, seafood, fish, chicken and roast veggies.
