Cru Juliénas - Vins Perrachon

The Cru Juliénas est is a rich, dark wine. We proudly present two Juliénas, made with grapes from two different domains: the Château de la Bottière and the Domaine des Mouilles. We also make a Special Cuvee Julienas with grapes from 100 year old vines  "Vieilles Vignes"

Those wines have received numerous prizes and awards. Both have been appreciated in the Parker Guide (86/100 and 88/100), the Wine Spectator and many reference French guides such as the Hachette Guide.
