Perrachon Beaujolais-Villages 2017
Most $16 Beaujolais is mass-market, large volume wine rushed to market soon after fermentation. Laurent Perrachon’s is a different sort — made with hand picked grapes from 45 year old vines. It shows all of the jubilant, carefree spirit of the region instead of the blandness of much cheap Beaujolais.
Perrachon’s 2017 Beaujolais Villages is juicy and refreshing. Unlike Perrachon’s more serious (but also delicious) wines from Juliénas and Moulin-a-Vent, this one is vat raised, and the vibrant ripe raspberry fruit shows through beautifully. The nose is clean and floral, and the mouth is smooth, lively, and refreshing.
