Languedoc-Roussillon:Les Perdrisieres

Founded in 1842 by Louis Tramier, the company has shown its ability to take the rough periods and the smooth. During this time the same family has always run the company, as one generation followed in the founder’s name. Each generation has enriched the estate with prestigious family vineyards, such as Musigny, Clos de Vougeot and others. Today the wines are still elaborated in the original winery which looks over the Mercurey vineyards, and the vats and barrels are thestocked in their own cellars. Built in 1830, these are the only cellars in Mercurey that are entirely tunneled in the rock; this ensures constant temperatures which in turn means excellent maturing conditions for every vintage. These advantages, coupled with the traditional know-how passed on from father to son, have allowed L. Tramier et Fils to patiently acquire a great amount of experience in wine maturing and bottling. They respect the time-honored techniques of the past, while applying the benefits of the latest advances in oenology and technology.

  • Pinot Noir

    The grapes for this delicious wine are grown in the area of the Languedoc that is known for its Pinot Noir. The rolling hills are made up of limestone, calcareous clay and sand which is very good for these grapes. And with the weather yielding somewhere between 300 and 330 days of sunshine per year, these grapes produce a Pinot Noir that is consistent from year to year. A deep garnet in color with tints of violet, this wine shows very nice ripe red cherry aromas with hints of earth and flowers. On the palate, there are plenty of dark red cherry flavors, with ample mid-palate texture and well-integrated tannins. And since the vineyards are not in expensive Burgundy territory, this wine is priced to drink everyday! The’perdrisières’ name comes from the partridge that live in the open lands nearby.
