The Château de la Terrière has stood in Cercié since the 16th century, in the heart of the Beaujolais region. It is one of the oldest estates in the region. The vines cover a total of 28 hectares and are 50 years old on average. They extend due south, to the mid-slope of a granite hill. The aim of Frédéric Maignet, who is in charge of the château, is to give the wine enough time to fully develop its expression and reflect the complexity of the terroir.
Parcel-based selection of "plateau" vines. Decomposed pink granite soil mixed with sand and stones. The soil in these parcels is low in clay and therefore filters very well, producing small yields.
Manual harvesting with rigorous sorting of the berries. Burgundy vinification method with destemming. Long maceration of about 25 days. Aged for 9 to 12 months in 2 to 5-year-old oak barrels. The wine is filtered slightly to preserve its full potential.
The nose is powerful with aromas of cherry, blackberry and a touch of earthiness. Good concentration and a long finish. Good ageing potentiel.
The perfect partner for red meat, game and Burgundy cheeses (Saint Marcellin, Mont d'Or, Époisses).
VEGGIE : Pan-fried mushrooms.
