'Les Terres Noires' is translucent gold wine with a beautifully balanced aroma of fruits and flowers. It tastes of green apples and lemons with floral hints, and a mineral character that compliments its fruitiness on the palate.
Winemakers Jean-Luc Terrier and Christian Collovray of Domaine des Deux Roches are certainly amongst the elite producers of the Maconnais.
Their St Veran wine is vinified and aged in stainless steel and is a rich, pure expression of Chardonnay. A proportion of ‘Les Terres Noires’, ‘Chailloux’ and the ‘Vieilles Vignes’ cuvées are aged in Vosges and Allier oak. These are some of the commune’s best wines, emphasising that a policy of quality over quantity invariably pays off.
The undulating, pastoral region of Macon lies approximately 50 kilometres south of the prestigious Cotes de Beaune. This area's best wines come from the steep vineyards surrounding the impressive outcrop of the `Rock of Solutré`. Domaine des Deux Roches's 29 acres lie adjacent to this impressive landmark.
