Domaine Roche Audran

Domaine Roche Audran

The highly motivated and energetic Vincent Rochette is only in his early 30's but has already made a name for himself with his superbly sculpted Visan and Côtes du Rhône. He owns land in both the communes of Visan and Buisson and this diversity of terroirs largely explains the extraordinary complexity in his wines. Very careful selection is carried out in the vineyards and in the winery and there is minimum intervention during the fermentation and ageing processes. Over the past few years, Vincent has been edging towards a truly bio-dynamic vineyard and, with the 2009 vintage, he will have achieved certification. The results of Vincent’s work can clearly be seen in the sheer purity of his wines. A walk in the vineyard block behind the winery just before the 2009 harvest revealed a fantastic eco-system where wildlife, insects and flowers, that had long disappeared, had returned in abundance. The vines have not been treated with any man-made sprays for the past seven years and the vineyards’ soils have been completely re-constituted.

The Côtes du Rhône (sourced from the Buisson vineyards) is primarily made from Grenache (80%), with the balance being made up of Carignan, Syrah and Mourvèdre. The Visan, Côtes du Rhône Villages is 60% Grenache and 40% Syrah and is sourced from 60 year-old vines situated to the west of Visan. The two top cuvées (Père Mayeux from Visan & César from Buisson) are selected from parcels that were planted over 80 years’ ago and which result in wines of extraordinary complexity. The stunning César Blanc comes from 27 year-old Grenache Blanc (70%) and Viognier (30%).

Deep purple in colour with a mass of soft and concentrated fruit. There's plenty of tannin to give structure and a pleasing earthiness on the finish. This is the perfect way to round off a good dinner.
