Terroirs Originels brings together a community of 30 vintners who continue to farm their land independently and all share the same passionate integrity to bring out the best authentic expressions of their specific heritage. The notion of conserving terroir is their priority and its protection is a vested commitment of each estate. Robert Perroud, the visionary founding member and current President of Terroirs Originels, and his older brother Michel and their families now work together in working their vineyards in Brouilly and Cogny. All their newer vines are farmed organically while the older vineyards are cultivated sustainably. Their father taught them a respect for nature, people and the value of hard work. In addition to taking care of the family legacy, they also built a new energy producing sustainable home and bed & breakfast place beside their new winery in Cogny.

Robert Perroud Brouilly Pollen · Profile

A very round, full-bodied expression of Gamay harvested from one of the first vineyards planted by the Romans 2, 000 years ago. The tannins are mature and supple, backing up a palate full of dark fruit with hints of spice. The finish is long with lingering notes of ripe fruit. Superb!

This complex wine pairs well with roasted and braised red meats, venison, meat-filled pasta dishes, and mature cheese. It is a lovely accompaniment to cured meat and cheese, add with dark chocolate and raspberries to your board for a wonderfully sophisticated touch. Delicious with French Onion Soup on a cool Sunday afternoon.
