Origin

Saint-Véran is a village in the heart of the Mâconnais, in southern Burgundy - the second in the area (after Pouilly Fuissé) to be given its own Appellation. Terres Noires is a single vineyard on the south-side of the landmark rock of Solutré, with limestone mixed with a black decomposed rock; exposure to sunshine and winds that help to moderate temperatures aid the ripening process.

Grape Variety

100% Chardonnay.

The grapes are put through slow pneumatic pressing before settling at controlled temperatures. Next, they are transferred into steel vats (70%) and oak barrels (30%) to undergo alcoholic fermentation, before the wine is left on its lees to undergo malolactic fermentation. Aged until the following spring (April/May).

Alcohol Percentage

13%

Cellar Potential

Ready now, but will keep to 2020.

Producer

Domaine des Deux Roches one of the top Mâconnais estates. Owned by two families, Collovray and Terrier, their eponymous company owns various domains in Burgundy and further south in Languedoc. In 2009, the Domaine began a transitional move to organic farming methods.

Food Match

This has the richness and depth to match chicken, pork and veal. Simple roasts would be best of all.
