The Château de la Terrière has stood in Cercié since the 16thcentury and is one of the oldest estates in the region. Located in the heart of the historic Beaujolais, facing Mont Brouilly, the property and its vines spread southwards over a volcanic hill, giving the wines a unique character, as most of other vineyards in this appellation are planted on sandy soils. Their approach is very traditional – from planting clover in between the vines to fix nitrogen in the soil and to limit the weeding, to harvesting by hand in small trays to keep a high quality of the grapes.
Beaujolais is one of the most up-and-coming areas in France, mainly driven by the emergence of fantastic young natural wine producers. The vine age is an average of 50 years old which make an incredibly concentrated style of Beaujolais. This Beaujolais-village is from the Lantignié and Régnié villages which have a reputation for producing delicate, fresh, floral styles of Beaujolais. This wine is the ultimate expression of the Gamay grape.
