Famille Perrin

In 1321, under the reign of Pope John XXII, four barrels were brought from the papal cellar in Avignon to be filled with wine in Châteauneuf. In 1549 "Noble Pierre de Beaucastel" bought "a barn with its plot of land extending to 52 saumées at Coudoulet".

The Beaucastels were among the more notable families of this little town and in 1687 Pierre de Beaucastel, was appointed "Capitaine de la ville de Courthezon" by Louis XIV.

Two centuries later at the time of the phylloxera outbreak, the owner of Beaucastel was Elie Dussaud, companion of Ferdinand de Lesseps who constructed the Suez Canal. At that time the vineyard went out of production and it was not until 1909, when Pierre Tramier bought the property, that planting began again. Beaucastel was then passed to his son-in-law Pierre Perrin, a scientist who made great progress with the vineyard. His efforts were built on by Jacques Perrin, who lived until 1978. Today the torch is carried by the sons of Jacques.

La Vieille Ferme Sparkling Réserve Brut

La Vieille Ferme Réserve Brut Sparkling is designed to share your celebration in elegance and simplicity. Whether served as an aperitif with friends or at a lavish banquet, this wine will help you enjoy the memorable moment and bringing conviviality. Made from Chardonnay vines, planted on limestone soils which provides the minerality and freshness that define the reputation of Classic French wines. Once blended, the wines are rested on their lees with regular bâtonnage (stirring). This process creates autolysis that is crucial to the sensorial development, bringing roundness and subtle aromas of hazelnut. The elaboration finishes with the "prise de mousse" and of course, bottling. La Vieille Ferme Réserve Brut Sparkling uniquely combines the tension of the limestone terroir, the freshness of Chardonnay and the roundness of aging on the lees.
