SHORT HISTORY: Fifth generation, Christian Roche inherited a portion of the property in 1984. Five years later, he decided to build the cellar in order to become an independent winegrower. After a few more years, in the continuing effort to develop better wines and noticing that conventional agricultural practices impoverished soils and the quality of wines, Christian decided to go back to basics: to respect the land and the vines. The culmination of this process was the decision to convert the entire property to Organic farming.

TERROIR: Argilo-Calcaire

VITICULTURE: Respect for the environment- working the soils for better rooting and healthy vines, selections massales (the French term for selecting the best vines in a vineyard and propagating them through cuttings). The property covers 47 hectares of vines with a predominance of white vines (32 ha).

VINIFICATION:

  •   Fermentation in cuve for 20 days

  •   Regular batonnage on the fine lees
