Description

Chateau PerrotWe discovered Chateau Perrrot near Castelmoron d’Albret, the smallest village in France. This is a classic Petit Chateaux producing award winning wines which have never been seen in the UK before. The 2011 is a gold medal winner and deservedly so. This little chateau is a real discovery and we are pleased to be able to introduce it to wine lovers over here. Perrot is owned by the Chavaux family and its vineyards lie about a mile away from the 10th century fortified village of Castelmoron which sits on the rocky escarpment high above. The vines sit on crumbly limestone soils and are surrounded by sunflowers to attract the bees.

Chateau Perrot ChaiSimilar to another of our popular Petits Chateaux (Grand Rousseau), Chateau Perrot’s land was once owned by Jeanne d’Albret (1528 – 1572), Queen of Navarre and the mother of King Henry IV. She stayed at Castelmoron several times and held a small court there. There is no doubt the Queen enjoyed the local wines, they have been made on this soil for centuries.

Chateau Perrot is a very well made Claret and is great with food; try it with roast duck, chicken, guinea fowl or lamb, rabbit and game pies. It’s a good match for strong hard cheeses as well as bean dishes with smoked ham or chorizo.

    Plenty going on in this wine, not what you would expect. A real eye opener. Do you think you’ll be able to get more stocks in? [NB Originally posted 01.11.15]

    First class little Claret. Very good value and another great discovery. Well done! I’m looking forwards to trying your other finds – your online shop beats the others hands down for the quality of its wines. [Originally posted 27.10.15]
