Les Enracinés Macon Chardonnay
Les Enracinés Macon Chardonnay is a natural and no added sulphur wine with pure, fresh and floral notes on the nose with hints of hawthorn. The mineral and saline sides develop well on the palate.
From a selection of plots planted in the village of Chardonnay, with mostly a limestone soil called the ‘Dalle Nacrée’ (Pearly Slab). This terroir has the characteristic of producing fine, delicate wines on which a winemaking with no added sulphite is possible.
The grapes are harvested in early morning in order to keep them fresh. They are gently pressed and the juice is settled. Only the fine lees are preserved. At this stage a slow oxidation of the must occurs. This will set off the alcoholic fermentation a few days later, a process allowing to guarantee the freshness of the wine. The ageing occurs in stainless steel tank for 6 months on fine lees. The bottling process is very strict to avoid any contact of the wine with oxygen.
The Château de la Terrière has stood in Cercié since the 16th century 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.
