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 in the "La Siberie" lieu-dit, in decomposed pink granite soil with a mix of sand and stones.
Traditional whole-bunch vinification, followed by maceration for about 25 days. for this cuvée we use a natural method with no added sulphites, in line with the authenticity of this terroir.
A fruity, pure and mineral wine with violet floral notes, a hint of dark berry fruits (blackberries, redcurrants) and a black pepper finish. The tannins are well-blended in the mouth with a balance on the fresh side.
Grilled red meat, game and Burgundy Chesses. Ideally, decanter it an hour before serving.
VEGGIE : Pan-fried vegetables with chestnuts.
