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.
The vines are situated on the "Grand Pré" terroir, in granite sand soil with excellent drainage.
Traditional whole-bunch vinification. Approx. 15-day maceration. Aged for 9 months on fine lees.
A slightly restrained nose: fruity, then aromas of violet and raspberry gently develop. A surpremely elegant violet finish.
Turkey with chestnuts, roast leg of lamb, duck with green peppercorn sauce.
VEGGIE : Spring vegetables (green beans, peas, asparagus, etc.) and sauteed new potatoes.
