Terroirs Originels is the brainchild of visionary grower Robert Perroud who wanted to start a community of independently owned and operated family estates with the goal to preserve the rich heritage of the different cru vineyards in Beaujolais. Some 20 years later, this community now includes 30 families who farm their land sustainably or organically. All wines are 100% estate grown and bottled with limited production to ensure the conservation of the terroir.
We are proud to represent 8 of these passionate and dedicated growers. All of them have their own unique story to tell. We have found that one of the common characteristics is their uncompromising commitment to the land and heritage. To them and to us at enotri, Roots Matter above all. Together we have come up with the idea to offer a special Cru Sélection case, featuring six different Cru Beaujolais from six different growers of the same vintage. Each vintage this selection could change so that the various families can let their top wines tell their story.
