2014 Les Freres Perroud Bourgogne Pinot Noir (organic)

SKU #1273902

Brothers ("freres") Michel and Robert Perroud who aim to follow in the footsteps of their father at their Beaujolais house. "Together we invested in our roots and bought our first 4 acres of vines in Brouilly. Then we decided to reconstruct a vineyard from a few of our old family plots in Cogny, on clay-limestone, located under the castle of Montmelas. We planted Chardonnay, Viognier, and Pinot noir, on the same lands where our maternal grandfather grew vines and made wine. All our young vines are under organic conversion since 2007 and our old vines are cultivated sustainably. Our grapes are harvested by hand in small baskets of 50 kg, and our methods of vinification are simple and traditional so our land can fully express its flavors and riches!"

This is a stellar Bourgogne-level Pinot Noir, anchored by rich cranberry, black cherry fruit, smooth integrated tannins, and a solid acid backbone that would pair well with rich gamey foods. At this price point and from this great vintage, a steal!​

This uncomplicated, candid expression of Pinot Noir is brimming with plenty of rich, red cherries and cranberries, and a flicker of earth and minerals on the mid palate through to the finish. Bright and charmingly rustic, this wine brings a lot to the table for a price you can't pass up.

Here is a staunchly "Old School" bottle for those who think that many Burgundy producers have become a bit too squeaky clean, and dare I say, boring. This is earthy, rustic and even a bit barn yardy yet filled with character, oodles of rich fruit and a hearty and satisfying nature. This amazing bargain would be perfect with Coq au Vin but might even stand up to cassoulet.

Perroud’s straight Bourgogne Pinot Noir over-delivers for the price point for sure! The 2014 is made organic, shows lots of upfront fruit with hints of earthy and minerals underneath. A Burgundy-quality wine with Beaujolais pricing is a great combination!

Additional Information:


Pinot Noir

- One of France's most legendary grapes and the grape that earned Burgundy its reputation. The parent of varietals like Pinot Gris/Grigio and Pinot Blanc, Pinot Noir is blue to violet to indigo in color with relatively thin skins, and it is said to have been cultivated in France for more than 2,000 years. At its best, Pinot Noir creates elegant wines that are filled with primary red fruit aromas and flavors while young, revealing with an array of secondary characteristics like earth, smoke, violet, truffle and game with age. The varietal is also known, perhaps better than any, for its ability to translate terroir, or a sense of place. While the best Pinot Noir still comes from Burgundy, it is being produced with increasing success in cooler climates around the world. In France, it is part of the trifecta of grapes that can go into Champagne, and it is also grown in Alsace, Irancy, Jura, Savoie, Lorraine and Sancerre. Outside of France it is produced under the names Pinot Nero and Blauburgunder in Italy's mountainous regions, as Spätburgunder in Germany and as Blauburgunder in Austria. In the US, Pinot Noir has found suitable growing conditions in the cooler parts of California, including Carneros, the Russian River Valley, the Anderson Valley, the Sonoma Coast, Monterey County, the Santa Lucia Highlands and Santa Barbara County, as well as in Oregon's Willamette Valley. In recent years, New Zealand has demonstrated its ability to interpret this hard-to-grow varietal, with successful bottlings coming from careful and attentive growers in Central Otago, Martinborough and Canterbury. Chile is also an up-and-coming region for Pinot Noir, creating fresh, fruit-forward, early-drinking and affordable Pinots from the coastal Casablanca Valley and the Limari Valley.


- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.

- The province of eastern France, famous for its red wines produced from Pinot Noir and its whites produced from Chardonnay. (Small of amounts of Gamay and Aligoté are still grown, although these have to be labeled differently.) The most famous part of the region is known as the Côte d'Or (the Golden Slope). It is divided into the Côte de Beaune, south of the town of Beaune (famous principally for its whites), and the Côte de Nuits, North of Beaune (home of the most famous reds). In addition, the Côte Chalonnaise and the Mâconnais are important wine growing regions, although historically a clear level (or more) below the Côte d'Or. Also include by some are the regions of Chablis and Auxerrois, farther north. View our bestselling Burgundy.
