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.
Decomposed pink granite soil mixed with sand and stones, and with deeper reserves of clay.
Traditional whole-bunch vinification. Approx. 15-day maceration. Aged for 9 months in cements vats.
The nose is very aromatic, with strawberry and raspberry summer fruit aromas. Round, delicate palate with a mineral finish.
The perfect partner for a burger, white meat or tuna fish (tuna or grilled salmon).
VEGGIE : Salads and red fruit tart.
