The Collovray and Terrier families created the Domaine des Deux Roches in 1986 in the Maconnais wine region, south of the Cote d’Or. Out of this marriage comes some of the most compelling St Verans in the region.
Deux Roches refers to the two gigantic rock cliffs that punctuate the landscape here: Vergisson and Solutre. The estate is in Davaye which is considered the best source of St Veran. The quite limited St Veran vineyards are to the north and the south of the Pouilly Fuisse vineyards but the northern vineyards make the best wines and this is where Davaye is found.
“We reverted with passion to the traditional methods of our grandfathers as if they were something new and extraordinary. Here we are, making our own compost again instead of using chemical fertilizers. And far from boosting yields, we prune severely and then go out into the vineyards again in summer to thin the fruit for perfect ripeness and better quality.” (Jean-Luc Terrier) “…The estate has become a locomotive for the appellation of St Veran and one of the most important properties. The estate uses impeccable technology creating wines of a reasonable price. These wines are an interesting alternative to the whites from the Cotes de Beaune.” – “The Best Wines from France 2010,” La Revue du Vin de France(La Revue)
