Domaine des Terreaux is located in Bussières, in the Saône-et-Loire department, in the heart of the famous Burgundy vineyard. Respecting the environment, the terroir and its viticultural know-how, we cultivate 13 hectares of vines in white and red AOC Mâcon Bussières and in AOC Pouilly-Fuissé. They vinify the entire harvest themselves and the work has been done in the family for five generations.
Domaine des Terreaux Bourgogne Chardonnay 2016
Fresh acidity but with classic peach and melon fruit, though it has developed a touch of pineapple and honey with bottle age.
100% Chardonnay. 90% of blend is fermented in stainless steel, full malolactic fermentation. 10% of blend barrel fermented and barrel aged in new French oak barriques for 6 months – blended & bottled May after vintage.
Sourced from the village of Bussières, to the south of the Mâconnais region, the Pornay family own a 13 hectare estate with an average vine age of 40 years. The soil is classic argilo-calcaire that suits Chardonnay so well and that lends elegance and finesse to the final wines. Samantha Bailey selects cuves and barrel with the Pornay family and make the final blend.
