Domaine Roche-Audran Terre Nature
Region: Côtes du Rhône
Grapes: Grenache, Syrah
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.
Terre Nature is Grenache and Syrah from the same vines that produce the Côtes du Rhône rouge, vinified entirely without sulphur or filtration. A crunchy red fruit nose of wild raspberries and strawberries with a silky mouthfeel and savoury notes of olive, wood smoke and black pepper.
