Tercet

Tercet is a partnership between Marc Soyard of Domaine de la Cras and Florent Lambert, a vineyard manager in the Côte d’Or. The two friends originally met in viticulture school, and Tercet is the realization of their dream for two outsiders to make wine together in Burgundy. They have each taken their own path. Marc took over Domaine de la Cras in 2014, while Florent is responsible for farming several hectares of vines in prestigious appellations in the Cotes de Nuits. Or course, with the name Tercet, there is a third partner, who brings an extensive network of connections in the Cote d’Or. Their vision is to work together to create a focused offering of exceptional wines vinified by Marc Soyard according to his house style. All wines are vinified and bottled by Marc Soyard at his cellar in Plombières-lès-Dijon using indigineous yeasts and minimal intervention. Several of the cuvées are made from grapes grown by one of the partners in vineyards they farm themselves, while others are vinified using organically farmed grapes purchased from friends. The resulting wines are Tercet’s purely delicious expression of the salient terroirs of Burgundy, carefully selected and expertly crafted.

Wines

Hautes-Cotes de Beaune Blanc

Varietal: Chardonnay

Color: White

Farming Practice: Certified Organic

Certified Organic. 100% Chardonnay. Marc was looking for other high altitude vineyards in the Cote d’Or to produce wines with fresher acidity that would mirror the aspects he knew at Domaine de la Cras. Through his partners at Tercet, he was able to get in touch with an organic grower in the hills far above Aloxe-Corton in the Hautes-Cotes village of Echevronne. Tercet requested that the grower press the grapes onsite, in a separate tank with no SO2, and then brought the juice to Domaine de la Cras for fermentation and elevage.
