Brief history of Terroir Selections

Terroir Selections was created in 2006 by Xavier Bizot and Lucy Croser with the aim of importing a personal selection of great French fine wines to Australia for sale in both top restaurants and wine retailers Australia wide. All our producers are vignerons families and who own (some for more than a century) and manage the vineyards which produce the fruit for their wines. They all have an acute vision of how their prized and praised terroir should be managed and do not compromise on the quality of their wines.

In 2008, Terroir Selections started distributing the first wine from Terre à Terre, a unique barrel-fermented Sauvignon Blanc (“Fumé Blanc” style) from Xavier and Lucy's close-spaced vineyard in Wrattonbully, South Australia.

Terre a Terre Wine Companion Results

Terre a Terre Sauvignon Blanc 2014

Fermented in a mix of 14 used French barriques and 10 600l demi muids, left on lees for 1 month, racked, SO2 added and returned to one 2000l foudre and 10 demi muids. Xavier Bizot has well and truly mastered the impossible: given tremendous texture and structure by the oak handling, yet simultaneously highlighting the intense stream of pure citrus, stone fruit and snow pea flavours. Will not die in its tracks either.

Import Reviews from Huon Hooke

Huon Hooke takes a look at a handful of imports.

Villa Bel Air 2010

Medium to deep red colour with a purple tinge. The aromas are clean and fresh and inviting, invoking raspberry, blackberry and subtle hints of dried herbs. In the mouth it is medium-bodied and elegantly structured, taut and firm to finish. Long finish. A very stylish merlot-driven Bordeaux. (A 50:40:10% blend from the Cazes family of Lynch Bages)
