Region: Côtes du Rhône
Grapes: Grenache Blanc, Viognier, Clairette, Bourboulenc
Roche-Audran is the domaine of Vincent Rochette in Vaison La Romaine, a Côtes du Rhône Villages AOP. Set amongst an area of preserved woodland, the estate extends over 50 hectares with 35 hectares of vines, 5 hectares of olive and lavender trees and 10 hectares of oak and pine woods. Very early on Vincent was convinced that it was essential to preserve this unique environment, converting the entire estate to organics and then to biodynamics over 15 years ago.
This is Vincent's Côtes du Rhône Blanc made from a blend of Grenache blanc, Viognier, Clairette, Bourboulenc. An enticing nose of apricot, peach and preserved lemon leading to a full and spicy palate with more stone fruit, floral hints and a snap of chalky minerality.
