About the Winery
Château de la Terrière is an ancient estate in the heart of Beaujolais that dates back to 1535. Located in the village of Cercié, facing the Mont Brouilly, the castle and the vines of the estate spread southwards over the rolling sandy-granite hills of Beaujolais. With land predominately in Brouilly and Regnié, the estate also manages small parcels throughout the Beaujolais Villages region, including Fleuire and Moulin-a-Vent.
Current owner Henry Plasse and oenologist Fréderic Maignet have succeeded optimizing the vines, making wine in a natural style by strictly controlling yields and farming the land using old fashioned, sustainable methods. With an average vine age of over 50 years, these are beautifully expressive wines that are not to miss.
Massanois couldn’t be more excited to launch these wines with the release of the epic 2015 vintage. Widely acclaimed by critics, the quality of 2015 Cru wines is considered to be even better than the renowned 2009 and 2005 vintages.
