ESTATE

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.

SOIL & VINEYARD

Decomposed pink granite soil mixed with sand and stones, and with deeper reserves of clay.

VINIFICATION & AGEING

TASTING NOTES
