Domaine Roche-Audran Cuvée César
Region: Côtes du Rhône
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.
Cuvée César is a special wine made from 100% Grenache sourced from Vincent's best parcels, all 80-100 years old. A nose of crystallised cherries and raspberries with notes of garrigue (thyme, rosemary and lavender). Full-bodied and powerful on the palate with the northern aspect of the vineyard bringing minerality and freshness.
