About this WINE

Domaine des Deux Roches

Domaine des Deux Roches

Winemakers Jean-Luc Terrier and Christian Collovray of Domaine des Deux Roches have built up an impressive array of vineyards in Burgundy, today owning around 50 hectares.

Across the board, their wines are among the very best expressions of the diverse terroirs of the Mâconnais, from the bright and breezy Bourgogne Blanc Tradition, vinified and raised exclusively in stainless steel, to the rich, textured St Véran, Les Terres Noires.

The winery itself is located in the village of Davayé, and the majority of the vineyards lie within site of the region’s most famous landmarks – the magnificent twin escarpments of Solutré and Vergisson.

This dynamic duo is also responsible for our much-loved Own Selection White Burgundy.

Chardonnay

Chardonnay

Chardonnay is the "Big Daddy" of white wine grapes and one of the most widely planted in the world. It is suited to a wide variety of soils, though it excels in soils with a high limestone content as found in Champagne, Chablis, and the Côte D`Or.

Burgundy is Chardonnay's spiritual home and the best White Burgundies are dry, rich, honeyed wines with marvellous poise, elegance and balance. They are unquestionably the finest dry white wines in the world. Chardonnay plays a crucial role in the Champagne blend, providing structure and finesse, and is the sole grape in Blanc de Blancs.

It is quantitatively important in California and Australia, is widely planted in Chile and South Africa, and is the second most widely planted grape in New Zealand. In warm climates Chardonnay has a tendency to develop very high sugar levels during the final stages of ripening and this can occur at the expense of acidity. Late picking is a common problem and can result in blowsy and flabby wines that lack structure and definition.

Recently in the New World, we have seen a move towards more elegant, better- balanced and less oak-driven Chardonnays, and this is to be welcomed.
