WineDiva's Review

Complex, woven, creamy.
Christian Collovray and Jean-Luc Terrier (Collovray & Terrier) were school friends who were so inseparable they married two sisters, and thanks to their love of wine, forged a bond between Burgundy and the Languedoc.
It began in 1986 when they joined forces to manage Christian's family vineyard that had been cultivated since 1928 by his grandfather. They named the venture Deux Roches (two rocks) for the Roche de Vergisson (in Saone-et-Loire) and the nearby Roche de Solutre (just west of Macon), these ancient angular escarpments are roughly two kilometers apart and 500m high; both can be viewed from Deux Roches in Davaye, Bourgogne.
The domaine's is to make mineral-focused and terroir-driven Chardonnays grown in clay-limestone soils.
The Pouilly-Fuisse has a golden hue and notes of apple turnovers, honey, grille, creamy lemon and toasted coriander. It's a complex wine woven and creamy with yellow fruits, melon, and roasted hazelnut flavours followed by a lively and zesty finish.
