This special cuvée is made by friends Jean-Luc Terrier and Christian Collovray of Domaine des Deux Roches and is a great introduction to the white wines of Burgundy. In 2017 they were certified 'Haute Valeur Environnementale level 3'. Herbacides are prohibited, cover crops are cultivated in alternating rows, and manure and compost are used as natural fertilizers.
The duo cultivates 60 hectares in region, the majority of their Mâcon AOC vines are farmed in the villages of Davayé, Charnay-lès-Macon, and Pierreclos, all of which are located below the giant rock ridges of Solutré and Vergisson in the northern part of the southernmost subregion of Burgundy.
This is a wonderfully fresh and crisp unoaked Chardonnay, offering granny smith apple and melon fruit flavours on the palate. The clean cut minerality gives complexity on the long finish. This definitely resembles more reputable regional wines of the Côte d’Or and is both, an excellent example of Mâconnais Chardonnay, as well as a tremendous value!
