Domaine Monier-Perreol

Domaine Monier-Perréol is a partnership between two producers whose love of the land is immediately apparent in the glass, a quality has earned them this revered designation.

Both Jean-Pierre Monier and Philippe Perréol can be described as easy-going, cheerful and grateful a vignerons who, despite their lack of material wealth, abound with intangible affluence. Both winemakers had been selling their fruit to the local co-op. Monier got wise that his fruit was a cut above the rest in 2001 and started making his own wine. In 2008 Perréol joined him and started making wine in Monier’s cellar.

As long-time friends with identical philosophies in the vineyard and in the cellar, the partnership was meant to be. With 40 acres a piece, both certified biodynamic, they now make wines labeled as Domaine Monier-Perréol, Domaine Monier and Domaine Perréol depending on the cuvée.

In the cellar their primary goal is to maintain freshness. They avoid greenness by managing stem inclusion. They de-stem all their fruit before crushing and then add the stems they deem rip back in. Fermentation is in open-top cement tanks with indigenous yeasts. Sulfur use is minimal to maintain that lively spark in the wine. Simplicity is sometimes the only way to reveal true beauty.
