Domaine Pardon et Fils

The passion for wine and the vine have been associated with the Pardon family since 1820, when Antoine Joseph Pardon, a wine-grower at l’Ermitage in the commune of Régnié Durette, was already producing and selling his wines in France and throughout Europe. At the beginning of last century, in the 1900s, Louis increased sales to restaurants, hotels, and brasseries in Paris (mainly) and also in other French cities. After the First World War, in order to meet his customers’ growing demands for quality wines from Burgundy and Côtes du Rhône, Louis obtained a licence as a Wine-producer / Merchant, then selected and added a number of wines to his range.

The Juliénas comes from old vines, which give a deep red colour to the wine. Fresh with powerful flavours of red fruits, redcurrant and raspberry. The palate is rich and fleshy and well balanced.
Serve at a temperature of 15 - 16° with grilled beef. Or, altenatively try with coq au vin.
Handpicked Gamay grapes picked at full maturity in early September. Grapes transported to the winery. 80% whole bunches used with a percentage of destemmed grapes. The crushing of these grapes by sheer weight initiates intracelluar fermentation. Semi-carbonic maceration for 6 days (whole berries) in cement tanks before pressing and the ferment continues normally for 7 days following. Malolactic fermentation done at 100%. Aged in steel tank 3 to 4 months before bottling.

Gold and Regional Trophy Winner at The IWC 2016 Decanter 2017, 93/100 points. "Fresh and lively yet unforced and restrained, with a fragrant red berry nose leading to a savoury red fruit intensity on the palate and finishing with a long, mineral-tingled persistence."
