Macon Villages Tradition, Domaine Des Deux Roches
Macon Villages Tradition, Domaine Des Deux Roches has a floral note followed by yellow fruits: think peaches and apricots. There is a subtle, pastry-like richness.
Childhood friends Christian Collovray and Jean-Luc Terrier each grew up in a family of winemakers and shared a bond from a young age. They became closer still, when they later married sisters Brigitte and Florence, also from a winemaking family. The friends now boast two properties, Domaine des Deux Roches near Mâcon and Altugnac in the Languedoc.
This domaine is based in the village of Davayé. Their 50 hectares of vineyards largely lie between the twin escarpments of Solutré and Vergisson and showcase the diverse terroirs of this region. The wines of Deux Roches are known for their drinkability and offer great value for money. Always looking to achieve the highest possible quality for their wines, they achieved the High Environmental Certification in 2017. So are now working towards becoming certified organic.
Grower: Domaine des Deux Roches
As with all wines on this website, this wine has been made without animal products. This is not the case with so many wines that are commonly on sale in the UK. Far too many wines have animal products used as a so-called production aid; they will often have a large array of chemical additives as well. Have a look at our page on additives allowed in wines. Many vegan wines are also organic or better still bio-dynamically grown. The care taken in growing the grapes and making the wine comes through in the taste of the final product. This is a vegan wine.
